Revised Schedule 01-01-2022
I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy new year and say thank you for all of your support and practice throughout the year.
As we enter the new year, our community will have a new schedule for both the in-person meetings and the online Zoom meetings.
We will be taking the next two weeks off from live meetings in consideration of the Covid situation in our community. We will plan to begin meeting again in person in two weeks and will assess the Covid level of community spread at that time. Please also note that the church has asked us to reinstate masking protocols when at the church.
One exciting announcement will be our return to the Fellowship Hall after more than a year in the large sanctuary.
Our next live meeting will be Saturday, January 15th. This will be a moving day as we relocate our altar, Densho bell, cushions, and all supplies back into the Fellowship Hall and closet. I'm asking anyone who is available to plan to attend that day to help move. If we can get the move done quickly, we'll sit afterward.
Our new schedule is as follows:
Live Zendo Meetings
1st and 3rd Saturdays at 9:00 am and the subsequent Thursdays of that month at 6:15 pm. For example: If we are meeting on Saturday, January 15th, the subsequent or following Thursday is January 20th. Below are the current dates for live meetings throughout the year.

Always in Gassho,
