November All-Day Sitting (Hybrid)

Again this month, our Everyday Zen All-Day Sit is being held both in-person at Green Gulch Farm and on Zoom. Norman will lead the sitting. For those sitting on Zoom, Norman will be offering group dokusan and Renshin Bunce will be offering individual practice discussion. Please see below for details and to sign up. 

The day begins at 9:00 am with a brief orientation followed by sitting and walking meditation. There will be a dharma talk in the morning. Noon service will be followed by a break for a silent lunch. In the afternoon, we return to sitting and walking meditation and conclude with an evening service. The day ends at 4:30.

We will not hold a full moon bodhisattva ceremony this month.

On this page, you will find the Zoom access info; information on and forms for requesting dokusan and practice discussion; and links to the Schedule of the Day and the EDZ Chant Book (PDFs). You might want to print out the Schedule and Chant Book.

About Participating on Zoom

When joining the All-Day Sitting on Zoom, please take care of yourself with the schedule as you need.

For sitting, you can either sit in front of your computer screen with video on or off, or sit and walk where you like. Your being onscreen will be encouraging to others, I think. Our Inos will be onscreen and ringing bells there. For services, only the officiants will be unmuted, but please join in the chanting with your mic muted if you can.

If you have questions about Zoom etiquette during our practice events, please refer to the guide linked to from this page.

Have a good sit.

Dokusan & Practice Discussion Request Forms

For Zoom Participants

If you are joining the sit in person, please make your requests for dokusan and/or practice discussion on site at Green Gulch Farm. 

If you will be joining the All-Day Sit on Zoom and would like to have group dokusan with Norman and/or practice discussion with a senior teacher, please use the appropriate form below to sign up. You are welcome to request one group dokusan and one practice discussion. Space is limited, especially for group dokusan.

If you’re able to make your request on Friday before the Saturday sit, this will help the jisha organize requests for the teachers. If that’s not possible, you are welcome to sign up on the morning of the All-Day Sit. Please know, however, that our jisha will be at Green Gulch Farm that day so new requests and emails to her might not be received right away.

About Group Dokusan on Zoom

Norman will offer dokusan to two small groups with up to 6 people in each group. Each group will meet with him for 25 minutes, the first group at 12:00, the second group at 12:25 pm (PT). Everyone will have the opportunity to ask a question or make a comment and receive a response.

If you’d like to join a group dokusan, please select one time slot and submit the request form for that time slot, only. Please do not submit two requests for dokusan. Each form will accept only six submissions, so please submit the form only if you fully intend to join the group. We do not have a waiting list at this time.

The groups will meet with Norman for dokusan in a separate Zoom meeting room from the main Zoom room for the All-Day Sit. To join the dokusan room, you will exit the main Zoom and join the dokusan room. When done, you will exit the dokusan room and re-join the main room. The link for group dokusan will be sent to you in a confirmation email when you sign up.

About Practice Discussion on Zoom

The teacher will accommodate as many people as possible for individual, one-on-one practice discussion. You will meet with the teacher for practice discussion in a separate Zoom meeting room from the main Zoom room for the All-Day Sit. To join the practice discussion room, you will exit the main Zoom and join the practice discussion room. When done, you will exit the practice discussion room and re-join the main room. The link for practice discussion will be sent to you in a confirmation email when you sign up.

For questions about dokusan or practice discussion, please email our jisha, Judy Fleischman. Note that she will be at Green Gulch Farm on the day of the All-Day Sit and may not be able to respond to emails right away on that day.
