All are welcome to join us for our Spring Cleaning Sangha 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. 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.
Please sign up below so we know how many to expect and to let us know whether you plan to bring an entree, vegetable, salad, bread, dessert or beverage.
