Please join us on Saturday, August 23rd (during our regular Saturday morning sit) for an opportunity to explore and deepen your connection to the various aspects of practice in the zendo (meditation hall).

We'll be talking and learning about playing instruments used in our sutra service, being time keeper (jiki) and leading walking meditation, being chant leader (ino), bowing, and offering incense.  We'll explore how we do them, the spirit in which we practice them, and the many different ways in which we may meet these forms -- none of which is a problem!
