May 18 All-Day Sitting (hybrid)

Again this month, our Everyday Zen All-Day Sit is being held both in-person at Green Gulch Farm and online via Zoom.

For those sitting on Zoom, Norman will offer group dokusan. Renshin Bunce will offer individual practice discussion. Please see below for details and to sign up.

The day begins at 9:00 am with a welcome and brief orientation, and continues with alternating rounds of sitting and walking meditation. Noon service is followed by a break for a silent lunch. In the afternoon, we return to sitting and walking meditation and followed by a dharma talk and small group discussion. An evening service ends the day, concluding at 4:30 with chanting the Three Refuges in Pali.

On this page, you will find the Zoom access info; links to the Schedule of the Day and the EDZ Chant Book (PDFs); and forms for requesting dokusan and practice discussion. You might want to open this page in a tab and also open or download and print out the Schedule and Chant Book, so you have them readily available during the sit.

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 can be encouraging to others. We recommend setting Zoom to ‘Speaker View’ for the day so that your main view onscreen is of the zendo at Green Gulch Farm, framed by thumbnails of others in the online sangha.

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

For Zoom Participants

If you 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.

Please make your request as early in the day as possible, to avoid disappointment and help the jisha organize requests for the teachers. Please know that the jisha is at Green Gulch Farm during the sit so 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.

Instructions and the link for practice discussion will be sent to you in a confirmation email when you sign up.
