*Online* Zazenkai Sunday May 3 2020

Dear Oxbow Zen friends,

Exciting News!  This coming Sunday, May 3, we will be having a half-day Zazenkai.  

You are warmly invited to participate in all, or as much of, the day as is possible for you.  The regular Sunday morning sit from 8-9:35 AM is folded into the schedule (bonus: with talk!).   The timing after the Dharma talk may shift a little depending on circumstances.  Feel free to join whenever you can.  Just mute your mic and settle in.

Please mute yourself during Zazen and during the chants.   You’ll hear the Ino and Doan.  Chant along in your own home.

Right now, interviews are planned during Zazen after the talk and before Open Sozan.  If you’d like to request interview during the day, please let Soshin Hoshi know.  

Questions?  Don’t hesitate to be in touch.
Looking forward to practicing with you!
