Community Work-Practice Day

Please join us for a Fall Community Work-Practice Day! Following the Saturday morning sitting we will spend a few hours sprucing up the interior and grounds of the Temple, followed by a delicious, nutritious, vegetarian potluck! This is an excellent way to get to know members of the Sangha and practice together outside the zendo. Please wear closed-toed work shoes or boots. If you have work gloves and/or hand/garden tools, please feel free to bring them as our supply is limited. All are welcome! As always, your help is greatly appreciated. Sign up in the AZC foyer or else contact Susan Hansen at admin@austinzencenter.org, or call 512-452-5777.
