Join us this Sunday morning for Family Zendo! This program is for parents, expecting parents, grandparents, and children of various ages! Tea will be served at opening and a short quiet, sitting period for families and children. Following this, there will be two 20-25 minute sitting periods for adults and adolescents, while there are mindfulness activities, snacks and dharma stories for younger children. Children are allowed to check on parents in the Zendo at any time. Following the activity period we all return to zendo for chanting and closing ceremonies. Coffee and snacks will take place following the service. Newcomers instruction is included during the opening service, with brief instruction on Zazen sitting meditation, breathing, and zendo etiquette.
