Just Right: Oryoki Training/Gathering #2

Dear Friends,
You’re invited to join us at Hyannis Zendo for our second oryoki training/hang out on Tuesday, September 11 from 5-6:30pm.

At this informal gathering, we’ll explore the forms, folds, and beauty of oryoki as we enjoy a light meal together (cooked by our tenzo-s, me and Seijin). 

You’ll have the chance to ask questions and will learn to tie the knot, guaranteed.

The event is free, but we need to know who’s coming so please email me a confirmation if you plan on attending.

A New Schedule at HZ
While I was away at summer ango, the HZ sangha kept the practice strong on the Cape and introduced a slightly different schedule. Since this seems to be working, we’ve decided to keep the summer schedule with the addition of Wednesday evening practice. Please take a look at our fall sitting schedule.
Ango at the Grail was powerful and deep. You can hear the rich series of dharma talks on Dōgen’s Bendowa through the Village Zendo’s website or watch videos of the talks on VZ’s facebook page. Below are a few pics from the kitchen point of view.
