June Zazenkai

Dear Oxbow Zen friends,

Exciting News!  On Saturday, June 6, we will be having a half-day Zazenkai. Please note that change in the day of the week: Saturday, not Sunday. You are warmly invited to participate in all, or as much of, the day as is possible for you.  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.
We will share the Zoom link through the email list, as usual, or email us directly for details.
Please mute yourself during Zazen and during the chants.   You’ll hear the Ino and Doan.  Chant along in your own home.
Right now, interview opportunities are planned during Zazen after the talk and before Open Sozan.  For those of you sitting with Oxbow Zen, if you’d like to request interview during the day, please let Soshin Hoshi know (ldufour917@gmail.com or send her a text).  
Questions?  Don’t hesitate to be in touch.
Looking forward to practicing with you,
Kenko.
