Welcome to BZC may all beings realize their true nature

BZC Remains Closed To In Person Activities
At Least Until March 2021

The Board has decided to keep BZC’s physical facilities closed to all but essential activities until a review of the Covid pandemic situation in March of 2021. All community spaces in the BZC facilities are officially closed. The patio, garden, community room, and zendo may be used only if necessary or essential, with prior notification and approval.

Essential activities include the residents’ use of their living spaces; maintenance and repair activities; and specially vetted activities, such as ceremonies.

The Board has also developed and adopted specific protocols for everyone’s safety when visiting BZC for such essential activities.
