Online Sunday practice occurs using Zoom Video Conferencing services. The link to the Sunday practice can be found in the newsletter sent out weekly. To signup for the newsletter go to the SSZ front page, where on the banner there is a link to sign up for the newsletter.
In the newsletter a link to the Sunday practice can be found, clicking on the link will load a Zoom Video Conference page into your broswer and connect to the SSZ meeting. Please have your computer device muted except for asking questions at the end of the dharma talk or during the period when you are in a breakout room.
Once you have connected to the Zoom meeting and have situated yourself, please make a bow to your camera, this is similiar to the bow we do as we take our cushion in the zendo. During zazen either turn off your video or turn your camera to your altar, blank wall, or other non-distracting image. After zazen, please use your camera to show your image.
