Staff Break

A reminder that tonight, Tuesday, August 20, will be the last formal sitting before the Center’s two-week break. We’ll resume on Wednesday, September 4, with early-morning zazen and dokusan.

Help with a Move

Sangha member Benjamin D. Taylor (who was on staff a few years ago) will be moving to a new house in the South Wedge neighborhood on Sunday, September 1st. Any Sangha members and friends who are available to help will be gratefully accepted. Moving will begin at his current apartment in Beechwood at noon. If you are available, please contact Ben by email at or text him at 585-642-8622 for more details. At the end of this project there will be refreshments and much gratitude!
