After careful consideration, our community has decided to reopen our Zendo for Zazen. The schedule will be slightly abridged and will also include a partial continuation of the Zoom meetings. The Zoom meetings have become popular for some who are not able to come to the Lakeland Zendo and those who live far away.
Below is the new schedule beginning (08-17-2021).
In-Person Zendo Schedule
Weekly every Tuesday Evening Zazen (For everyone's safety, face coverings are required for entrance and will be worn at all times. We will be practicing social distancing.)
6:15 PM - 7:30 PM (Zazen period(s), Four Vows, outdoor sangha gathering. Dharma talks, and Dokusan on select evenings).
Bi-Monthly Saturday Morning Zazen - 1st and 3rd Saturdays only
9:00 AM - 10:20 AM (40 min. Zazen period, Four Vows, outdoor sangha gathering. Dharma talks will be on select Saturdays and Dokusan during Zazenaki (short retreat).
**We are currently looking into the possibility and safety of offering Zazenkai once again. Keep an eye on the website schedule regarding an upcoming Zazenkai (short retreat).
Zoom Meeting Schedule
Tuesday Evening Zoom Meeting - 1st and 3rd Tuesdays only

Please let me know if you have any questions about the schedule or if you need the link to the Zoom meetings at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are thrilled to be reopening and look forward to sitting together again within the warmth of the sangha.
