We are sorry to have to cancel Family Zen this month. We will stay in touch and get back together again when the coronavirus pandemic is over.
In the meantime, we are thinking of all our Family Zen Friends and how much we will miss seeing you. As soon as it is safe to come together again in the zendo, we will do that. And- when that time comes, we will have a big celebration!
The adults are continuing to meet online, through Zoom (click here for details), and are following our regular schedule. At first it felt a little strange, but after a few times, we have gotten used to it. It has helped us feel connected to our Zen friends and helped us to stay calm.
If parents and/or children would like to join us online for a short sitting practice at some point, you are welcome to join the adult online group. A nice thing about an online sit is that you are free to step away at any time, by just closing the program- even after 5 minutes or less.
Stay well, be safe.
