Upcoming events at Ordinary Mind
The dates for the September Ordinary Mind practice intensive have been set. It will begin Friday evening September 21 and run through Sunday afternoon September 23. Please plan to follow the complete schedule. We will have more information about how to register for the intensive available shortly.
There will be two all-day sittings before the intensive to provide an opportunity to practice extending your zazen practice with a few additional sitting periods. The all-day sittings will be July 22 and August 19, as an extension of the regular Sunday morning program, and ending at 5 PM. There will be a break for lunch, so please bring a bag lunch. The schedule is designed to provide an introduction for those new to intensives. There will also be time for questions and answers.
There will be a sangha work day May 13 to help move and level some dirt on the grounds. If you can spare some time after zazen to help with this project, please wear or bring work clothes and a rake or shovel. It should not take long with enough help.
I am likely to be away July 9-17. During this time there will be no morning zazen on the weekdays. The regular Sunday morning program will still be held on July 15.
