Oxbow Zen is sitting together **ONLINE** for the time being during this time of physical distancing. An email with the video link will be sent around on the Oxbow Zen community email list in time before the sits. Looking forward to sitting with you!
In addition, the Village Zendo is offering daily morning sittings via Zoom, Mon-Fri 7:30-8:30. Details and recommendations at https://villagezendo.org/online-zendo/
Oxbow Zen is a group of Zen practitioners in the greater Northampton, Massachusetts, area. Our aim is to offer a refuge for people to practice and learn about Zen meditation; our wish is to nourish a community to support and deepen our practice together.
Practicing in the White Plum Lineage of Zen, we invite meditators from all traditions to participate. We typically open and close with a short chanting service.
In addition to regular sits, we also engage in monthly Study opportunities and hold day-long sits (Zazenkai) several times each year (e.g. Jan, Mar, Oct). Occasional Dharma talks are offered by Dharma Holder Lisa Soshin Dufour and Senior Student Volker Kenko Ecke, Zen students of Roshi Enkyo O’Hara and Roshi Ryotan Eiger of the Village Zendo in New York City. Opportunity for private interview with Soshin Hoshi is available.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns. We are looking forward to sitting with you!
