PLEASE FOLLOW THESE IN-PERSON COVID GUIDELINES
- Be fully vaccinated against COVID-19
- Wear a face covering at all times
- Do not attend if you have symptoms of illness
- Respect social distancing in the Zendo
We’ll keep these requirements under review and consider relaxing them when it’s safe to do so.
Use this zoom link to join our online events if you cannot come in person:
In person: 5:30 am – 6:10 am, Monday to Friday – zazen
Identical in format to our pre-pandemic practice, except that the in-person practice COVID guidelines need to be followed. We will not stream zazen from the zendo. Volunteers will continue to host a parallel online zazen group on Zoom at the same time every day for anyone who is unable to attend the zendo.

As above, the zendo-hosted portions of the Saturday morning program will be identical in format to our pre-pandemic practice, except that the in-person practice COVID guidelines need to be followed. We provide rice and lentils for breakfast. Please feel free to bring a dish to share with others. We eat together indoors during the winter and inclement weather, and outside during warm sunny weather. A standard work period will follow until about 9am. The last sitting period goes from 9:30 am till 10:10 am. None of this will be streamed, except for the service from 7:00 – 7:30, which will be connected to our regular Zoom room. Anyone attending online may join Zoom as usual at 5:30am or 6:20am, and the service will join the Zoom room at 7am. The Zoom program will conclude as usual after the service at around 7:30am.
