May All-Day Sitting (on Zoom)

Led by Norman Fischer

Owing to the recent spike in Covid conditions, this month again our All-Day Sitting is being held on Zoom, only. Because of this, we will not be doing the full moon ceremony at the end of the day as we had planned. Instead, our schedule and practice for the day will be as it has been for these sittings on Zoom.

On this page, you will find the Zoom access information along with links to the Schedule for the Day and the Everyday Zen Chant Book, and below, forms for requesting dokusan and practice discussion. The Chant Book and Schedule are PDFs suitable for downloading, printing, or viewing your screen. 

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. 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.

Request Forms

During this All-Day Sit on Zoom, Norman will be offering dokusan (interview) and Kathie Fischer will be offering practice discussion.

To request to meet with one of them, please complete the appropriate form below. If you’re able to sign up on the Friday before our 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.

Norman and the senior teacher offering practice discussion will accommodate as many people as possible. They will contact you by phone on the day of the sit when it is time for you to meet with them. They can contact you with a voice-only call or on FaceTime, if you have it and prefer. Please indicate your preference on the request form and make sure to leave your phone ringer on during the sit.

For questions about dokusan or practice discussion, please email our jisha, Judy Fleischman.
