Half-Day Sit this Saturday, June 9

Valley Dragon continues to meet on Sunday nights at our usual time (zazen at 7:15 pm). After zazen, we are continuing our casual study of some of the Soto Zen tradition’s source texts. We continue working through Dogen’s wonderful short teaching essay, Fukanzazengi, his basic instructions for zazen practice. Please join us!

Our next half day sit is this Saturday, June 9. This is another rare chance to sit for a few periods in a row, and get a taste of the deeper settling that Zen can help support in our lives, in this turbulent, often confusing time.

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

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.
