If you’ve never meditated with us before, please read the information below before joining us.

  • It is helpful to arrive a few minutes early so that you can settle in before we start meditating.
  • If joining online, your sound will be automatically muted when you arrive.
  • There will be three bells to signal the beginning of the sitting meditation period.
  • There will be two bells after 25 minutes, followed by a “clack” to begin kinhin, or walking meditation.
  • After 10 minutes of kinhin there will be another “clack” to sit down again, followed by three bells for the second period of sitting meditation.
  • We end with one bell, followed by the robe chant (which will be displayed on your screen if joining online) if you want to join in.
  • The person who is doing the bells will then read a line or two from Suzuki Roshi.

Additional Information

  • When attending online, most of us set up a cushion and a mat in front of the laptop or phone, but with the screen turned away so we’re not looking directly at it – you can experiment with the set-up that works for you.
  • On Friday mornings we have a weekly check-in at 8 am that lasts about 40 minutes – we each talk about how our practice has been and what’s going on for us
  • On Saturday mornings at 11 am we have an hour-long study group that you are welcome to join.
