What does sitting Zen mean?

As usual, I'm not qualified to answer but doing it anyway. Let the experts tell you after my simple understanding. You might call it meditation. It is a way of stilling the mind so that thoughts in large subside and those that come are let go. The philosophy holds that our desire for a particular outcome prevents the freedom to accept what is. Those advanced in the practice may have an extended time free of thought. Others like me may squirm and wiggle and think all over the map while "sitting Zen"

I am an Asian-American and I am vegetarian. I relocated to The Villages for about two years, I am interested in practicing Zen Meditation and Vipassana Meditation. I have been trying to search the Buddhist meditation group in The Villages for regular practice. I very appreciate any information about the Buddhist meditation group activities in The Villages.
My email contact is Kieu2567@comcast.net.
