Start the New Year with Zazen!

Happy New Year!

We return to Sunday night, January 7, after a couple weeks off through the holidays. After zazen, we will continue reading and discussion of the Sandokai, one of Soto Zen’s foundational source texts.

The following Saturday, January 13, we will conduct our monthly half-day sit. Please join us for an afternoon of silence and mindfulness.

The schedule is as follows:

1:00-1:35 zazen (sitting)
1:35-1:45 kinhin (walking)
1:45-2:20 zazen
2:20-2:30 kinhin
2:30-3:05 zazen
3:05-3:15 kinhin
3:15-3:50 zazen
3:50-4:00 kinhin
4:00-4:35 zazen
4:35 closing dedication of merit

There is no fee, and you may enter or depart at any point, preferably during the kinhin periods. Donations (for use of space and supplies) are welcome.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing, preferably in dark solid colors that cover knees and shoulders. Make sure cell phones are turned off – please check that vibration also is turned off. Please leave personal items, including water bottles, in non-practice spaces (entry or back room.)

As usual, we will be at Dragonfly Yoga. Please be in touch if you have questions or concerns.
