Sanshin will reopen for local practice concurrent with the annual meeting that will be held the weekend of August 8. Watch for further information about the activities of that weekend as it becomes available, but we do know now that regular Sunday practice will happen that day and that Okumura Roshi will be giving the dharma talk.
Some important things to know about this reopening:
- Sanshin will be holding local regular practice only for now. Folks who live in town and have been fully vaccinated will be welcome to attend morning zazen and service, evening zazen and Sunday zazen and dharma talk. The Wednesday evening book group will remain virtual for the moment, until we can determine the best way to make that a hybrid activity.
- We will not be offering guest practice for some time yet. That includes sesshin, retreats, weekend workshops, etc. There are logistics unrelated to COVID that need to be worked out, and as of now we can't house you, feed you or provide you guidance and direction. If you're outside of the Bloomington area, please continue to join us virtually.
Practice leaders are working to prepare Sanshin for this local reopening, and we look forward to being together again in person
