Virtual Zendo

While we are closed during the corona-virus outbreak, we are opening a virtual zendo. We are hosting online sits led by Mountain Cloud jikis at all our normal sitting times. Please join us and connect with each other online.

To participate in these virtual sits on your computer/tablet or other device, use this link….

Virtual sits will follow our usual format which include a short walking or stretching period between two 25 minute sitting periods. It’s fine to come into the online sit late or leave early. The zoom platform is flexible and easy for participants to use. At the jiki’s discretion, some sits may have a short discussion or chant period following the sitting period.
