Please mute your microphone during sitting meditation.  You can meditate with your camera on or off.  Each Zoom meeting begins a few minutes before the posted time.  You are welcome to arrive late or leave early.

Helpful tips for Using Zoom for online meditation and classes.


You can arrive late for any in-person sitting session (but note: for some smaller programs, with only one staff person, if you are not on time the door might be locked. Best to register if you plan to come).  Please place your shoes in the main closet and enter the meditation hall quietly.  If there is a gatekeeper, you may be directed to wait outside the meditation hall for a few minutes before entering.  You can also quietly leave any meditation session early.  A good time to do this is during walking meditation.


Public sitting meditation sessions may be cancelled on holidays. We have changed our schedule many times as we try to keep up with the changing pandemic situation. Please check out our monthly calendar regularly.
