I hope you found ways to nourish your bodies and spirits during the Interdependence Day weekend. I took a trip to Pt. Reyes yesterday to walk on the dunes, listen to birdsong and the sound of waves, and try to convey the hues of sky, clouds, and sand with watercolors.
Our newest Branching Streams affiliate is Seattle Soto Zen, whose guiding teacher is Kanshin Allison Tait. Kanshin is a student of Norman Fischer who trained at San Francisco Zen Center, both at City Center and at Tassajara.
There will not be a Zoom clinic with Jon Voss this week.
If your sangha/center is reopening while remaining available to participants by Zoom (and it’s not already on your calendar) you may wish to attend:
A Branching Streams Workshop
After Covid — Technology and the Zendo, A Practical Approach
Facilitated by Jon Voss
Saturday, July 17, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. PDT/12:00-1:30 p.m. EDT
Zoom link or Meeting ID: 222 402 816, Passcode:057143
By popular demand, we’re offering a 90 minute online program to explore how various sanghas are making their temples accessible with technology. We’ll be going behind the scenes at a handful of hybrid zendos to learn what technology solutions people have come up with, from computer and a/v hardware to aesthetic and privacy considerations. We’ll also leave ample time for Q&A so you can ask your own questions about various technology setups. No registration is needed. Please share this invitation with your sangha members.
