All people are welcome to join our online zendo. We ask that you respect our virtual space as if you were attending in person and follow our online etiquette:

  • If you have not attended an orientation session please contact us to schedule an online session before joining our online zendo.
  • Please sit still for the entire period of zazen, just as if you are in the physical zendo.
  • Please turn On your Zoom video. If there is an issue with this, please discuss with our temple director via email or contact page.
  • Students can only be admitted during our rest periods between meditation, as defined in our schedule.
  • We include a little bit of time afterwards for conversation, so please feel free to join us or leave a message in chat.

For assistance with using Zoom, please reference their help page.
