Half Day Sit this Saturday, Jan. 9, 2016 from 1-5 pm (see schedule below.) Location: Dragonfly Yoga.
The half-day schedule is as follows:
1:35-1:45 kinhin (walking)
4:35 Service and closing
There is no fee, and you may enter or depart at any point, preferably during the kinhin periods.
A half day of sitting is a wonderful opportunity to put aside our daily concerns for a brief period and settle more deeply into the silent space of zazen (just sitting). Please wear loose fitting comfortable clothing, preferably in dark solid colors. Shoulders and legs should be covered. Watches are discouraged, and cell phones should be silent, preferably turned off and left outside the practice space with shoes, purses, and water bottles, etc. (there are cubbies and safe places for such things.)
It can seem daunting to sit a few periods if you only tend to sit more briefly, but with collective energy and the freedom to adjust your posture as needed, it is fully doable for just about anyone. The benefits are immediately felt.
Please be in touch if you have questions or concerns.
