Practice During COVID-19

Practice Opportunities

Please note that our practice offerings are now available through Zoom video conferencing. If you would like to join us for regular Wednesday night zazen or weekly Sunday Sit’n’Study, please sign up on our Friends of the Sangha list for email updates on the schedule, current study materials, and links to Zoom meetings.

  1. Wednesday evening zazen: Almost every week of the year we practice traditional Zen sitting and walking meditation, hold a brief session of chanting, and offer a dharma talk by our teacher or a dharma discussion led by a sangha member. We meet via Zoom video conferencing from 7:15-9PM, and in person as well as Zoom every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month. For in-person sitting, masking and self-screening for symptoms of illness are required. We do not require proof of vaccination to attend.
  2. Sunday study session: Each Sunday at 8:55AM we meet via Zoom video conferencing to study a dharma text. Our discussions are led by students and often centre on traditional Zen texts, making for a rich and exciting discussion. Visit the Study page to view the week’s study selection.
