• Online Sunday Service

    Needs a location

    Online Sunday Service with Anchorage Zen Community is offered on Zoom Sundays 9:00 am - 10:30 am. RSVP'ing to the service will not generate the zoom ID/password so please email [masked] or call AZC at[masked] to schedule a brief phone call to connect with a group member for the Zoom meeting ID number and password.

    The schedule will be:
    9:00-9:25 sitting meditation
    9:25-9:30 walking
    9:30-9:55 sitting
    9:55-10:00 short chanting service
    10:00-10:30 dharma talk by Genmyo, 2nd and 4th Sundays

    On the first Sunday of each month, dokusan is offered.
    The third Sunday of each month is Sangha Sunday, an open forum to bring a reading or a reflection that has been nourishing your practice.

    Here are the chants we use in Sunday Service:

    Verse of the Kesa:
    Great robe of liberation
    Virtuous field far beyond form and emptiness
    Wearing the Tathagata's teaching
    We vow to free all beings

    Purification:
    All the twisted karma ever created by me since of old;
    On account of my beginningless greed, hatred, and ignorance;
    Born of my conduct speech and thought;
    I now acknowledge openly and fully

    Great Vows for All
    The many beings are numberless, I vow to free them;
    Greed, hatred, and ignorance rise endlessly, I vow to abandon them;
    Dharma gates are countless, I vow to wake to them;
    Buddha’s way is unsurpassed, I vow to embody it fully.

    A chance to share thoughts or reflections with the group (optional) will follow.

    One can join the online meeting room before the first sit, or during the walking times, just as in our in-person zendo. People may sit the first period, the second period, attend the talk, or any combination of those three.

    We hope these meetings give a chance for folks to reconnect or to try out the group for the first time. If you haven’t sat in-person before and have questions, please email [masked] Take good care for the sake of all beings and we hope to sit with you soon,
