Our sangha will hold a silent half-day Zazenkai (meditation intensive) on New Year’s Eve (12/31/16), from 8:00 am to noon, at TCMC. Sensei Al will begin the morning with a brief Zen service, and this will be followed by alternating periods of sitting (Zazen) and walking (Kinhin) meditation. Opportunities for brief Dokusan (individual meetings with Sensei Al) will be provided, though not mandatory. Plenty of meditation cushions and chairs will be available. No registration is necessary. Please plan on arriving no later than 7:45 am, so that we can begin promptly. Noble silence will be maintained throughout the morning.
