This Sunday the dharma talk, Practicing Equanimity to Extinguish Suffering, will be given by Jundo Steve Given.
The service chants for Sundays can be found here.
Online Sunday practice occurs using Zoom. The link to the Sunday practice can be found in our newsletter, sent weekly. To sign up for the newsletter, go to the SSZ homepage, and scroll to the bottom to find and complete the “Stay in Touch” form.
Consider bookmarking these links for easy access. Upon starting your Zoom session via the newsletter’s Sunday morning practice link, please leave your microphone muted except for asking questions at the end of the dharma talk or during the concluding breakout rooms.
Once you have connected to the Zoom meeting and have situated yourself, please make a bow to your camera; this is similar 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 turn your camera toward yourself—many faces make a community in this socially distanced method of practice.
