We will be closed until June 1.  

Should conditions change, we could reopen earlier. 

Zuiko will be sitting in the zendo at every zazen period listed below.  Please sit with her whenever you can. Just sitting quietly can be helpful in times like these. 

Our Monday night dharma discussion group is continuing through Zoom.   If you’re interested in joining, please contact the Center.

You can connect with us through email or phone.  And you can listen to our dharma talks online and read our posts on Facebook.  To find the dharma talks, click on the “Resources” tab above, and you’ll see the link.

Please take care out there.

With deep bow,
Zuiko

Quote of the week

Feel as a Meditator
There might be periods—a year or even two—when we can’t get to the cushion, but that doesn’t mean we have to give up . . . We can still carry meditation inside, still see and feel as a meditator, but physically practice differently.
