We now sit zazen Tuesday evenings at 6:30 

WE ARE GOING TO BE MORE VIGOROUS IN ASKING FOR DONATIONS!  SINCE NO ONE INVOLVED IN (OR OUTSIDE) THE CENTER IS GETTING ANY MONEY AT ALL OUT OF THIS, UNDERSTAND THAT ALL DONATIONS GO TO RENT, HEATING, COOLING AND WATER.

... AND OCCASIONALLY FANS AND BUDDHA STUFF.

IT FEELS LIKE A PRIVILEGE TO JUST HAVE DOORS TO OPEN AGAIN!  MUCH GRATITUDE TO OUR ABBOT, cONNIE WHO KEPT AND NEGOTIATED OUR ONGOING LEASE DURING THIS TIME OF GREAT UNCERTAINTY. 

wE ARE GOING TO OPEN ONE EVENING A WEEK, FOR NOW.

cHANGES:

  • nO CHANTING.  

  • FOR THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF OTHERS AND THEIR FAMILIES, WE ARE ASKING FOR MASKS TO BE WORN.  

  • WE WILL HAVE A WINDOW VENTILATION FAN TO MOVE AIR THROUGH AND OUT OF THE PRACTICE SPACE. AIR CONDITIONING MAY SUFFER, WE'LL SEE.

  • UNFORTUNATELY, WE WILL NOT HAVE TEA AND SNACKS AND WE ASK THAT SOCIALIZING IN THE SPACE BE KEPT TO A MINIMUM.

  • WE MAY HAVE TO LIMIT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN THE ROOM. IF WE GET TO THAT ATTENDANCE LEVEL, WE WILL LOOK INTO OPENING OTHER DAYS/NIGHTS.

IT'S GOING TO BE MORE OF A 'STRICT TEMPLE' FOR A WHILE, BUT THIS CAN BE VIEWED AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE A MORE RIGOROUS INTERNAL PRACTICE.
