EDZ's Electronic Mailing List

Everyday Zen’s News & Events mailing list sends out sangha news, invitations to special events, and announcements related to our ongoing programs. Sangha news can include special practice opportunities and sangha social events, as well as news of a new book or tour by our guiding teacher, Norman Fischer.
For our semi-annual print brochure, please see Print Newsletter.
Main News & Events List
All subscribers receive general sangha news and special events. In the form below, you can opt out of mailings relevant primarily to Bay Area residents. These mailings come from the address ''.
Note that invitations to our annual Practice Period and sesshin go out to everyone (even those who opt out of Bay Area mailings), as will excerpts from our twice-yearly print newsletter.
Ongoing Program Mailings
For mailings on some ongoing programs (listed below), you must explicitly select to receive them. Each of these program mailings will come from a different email address: 
  • Monthly All-Day Sittings (
  • Weekly Dharma Seminar (
  • Everyday Zen Dialogs: Spiritual practice in the world (
  • Everyday Zen Annual Women’s Retreat (
Note: Opting in or out of Bay Area mailings will not affect your preferences for these program mailings. So for example, if you opt-out of Bay Area mailings and also sign up for Weekly Dharma Seminar, you will receive mailings about Dharma Seminar and only those mailings to the main News & Events list relevant beyond the Bay Area. 
You can add or remove yourself to these groups at any time by updating your preferences. Find the"Update Your Preferences" link in the welcome email or any email from the list.
