Half-day Sitting – Sunday, April 17

Dear Dharma Friends,

There will be a half-day sitting at BZC’s zendo on Sunday, April 17, from 8:00 a.m. to noon. We will have five periods of sitting and kinhin, with a break in the middle. This is a nice, quiet way to begin the day, and all are welcome.

Zazen will be physically distanced, with a capacity of 24 people sitting in the zendo. For the present, wear an N-95 or KN-95 mask.

Please bring your vaccination card unless you already have one on file with the BZC Office Manager  (

Windows will be open, so dress warmly, according to the weather. A monitor will be at the zendo door, checking the list of vaccination-registered members. Please note that should we experience another wave of Covid, any or all of these protocols will be revised.

Suggested donation is $10. You can sign up by emailing the Director Mark Copithorne at Mark will also be happy to answer any questions you may have.
