Sangha Work Day & Potluck Lunch

Following the Saturday morning sitting we will spend a few hours sprucing up the Temple, followed by a potluck lunch.

This is an excellent way to get to know members of the Sangha and practice together outside the zendo. Wear closed-toed work shoes or boots. If you have work gloves and/or hand/garden tools, feel free to bring them as our supply is limited. Families are welcome! As always, your help is greatly appreciated.

If this is your first time at the Zen Center, consider going to our online Beginner’s Meditation Instruction and/or familiarizing yourself with basic AZC etiquette prior to the day of the event.
