Zoom Zendo

Joining With Zoom

 

Zoom Zendo Meeting ID: 541 552 1175.

 

Password: available from the Ino

 

You are showing up to support the practice of all beings. Your sitting place is set aside from other activities, and is free from distractions.

 

Click in up to ten minutes before the scheduled start to the period of zazen.

 

You will hear the han and have the opportunity to get settled before the zazen bell rings. Keep your mic on mute. Sit facing the wall or in profile from your screen. You do not need to watch your screen or the clock during zazen. Listen for the sounds of the zendo.

 

When the bell rings after zazen in the morning, keep your mic muted and chant the Robe Chant with the priest in the zendo. Then follow along with service, bowing with the bells and chanting. You will need enough space to either do standing bows or full prostrations during service.

 

If you have questions the Ino (zendo leader) is available. Ask the Ino

A good guideline is to be seated at least 5 minutes before the first period is scheduled to begin in the morning. Arriving 10 minutes early allows you to settle without hurry.

 

At the beginning and end of kinhin, the door will be opened briefly. Some leave at this time to go to work, family, school or other obligations. Kinhin is also a time to use the bathroom.

 

If you come to Ashland Zen Center and like what you experience, help pay it forward to the next person who comes through the door. There is a wooden donation box on the wall in the entry room, if you feel moved to give.

 

Welcome.

 

 

 

May all beings live in safety and be free from suffering.
