Teisho by Dhara-sensei, Sunday, December 17

Center on Break

The Center’s winter break begins Wednesday, December 20, and runs through Wednesday, December 27. We’ll start up again with the 6:00 am sitting on Thursday, December 28. As always, the zendos at Arnold Park and Chapin Mill will be available to members during the break (although the heat at Chapin Mill will be turned down very low to conserve energy). Also, we’re happy to report that Zoom sittings will continue uninterrupted, except for Christmas morning. Check the online calendar if you’re unsure about the schedule.
