Our annual practice period is a time of increased commitment to practice, guided by dokusan with a teacher, consultation with a preceptor, and a practice plan you create for yourself. Materials and registration are coming soon.
Genko will discuss aspects of moving on from regret.
In response to the recent rapid rise of Omicron Covid infections on Vashon Island and in King County the PSZC Board has decided to move all sangha wide events for the month of January to online only, subject to ongoing assessment of the Covid situation.
We are taking this action in consultation with sangha medical experts, the Board and the Abbot. We recognize that Zoom practice at home cannot replicate in-person practice at the zendo and we will continue to adapt our protocols so that we can practice safely together again as soon as possible. This feels like a way we as a sangha can do our part to help “bend the curve”, take care of each other, the wider community and our over-extended healthcare workers.
All sangha-wide scheduled meetings, sits and retreats (including the January day sit) will be offered on Zoom only. Please check the PSZC website for details. At this time the in person Work Practice scheduled for January 15 from 10 to noon at the Zendo is also cancelled.
Please stay safe, warm and healthy,
For the PSZC Board
