Rohatsu Weekend *ANOTHER CHANGE*

December 5 @ 8:00 am - December 8 @ 8:00 am

Each year on 8th December Buddhists all over the world celebrate the Buddhas Awakening. In the days leading up to this special event many temples and groups organise intensive practice periods of zazen. From Saturday 5 December up to the Rohatsu Tuesday the North-London group we will also offer extra opportunities to practice via Zoom in addition to our regular schedule of zazen. The enhanced schedule will be as follows:

  • SATURDAY 5th December – 1/2 day ANOTHER CHANGEWE WILL BE HOSTING a Longer Sit at North London This next weekend, as planned before but with a slightly different schedule  (we got it wrong!  the Lanau sitting was last weekend, not next weekend – days are confusing!)

The sessions (except Saturday 1/2 day) are accessible via the North London zoom link as usual: https://zoom.us/j/344964756?pwd=OUxRQWcwU1ltQzh5SXk4TDdObXFjQT09   There is no need to register. We recommend that those wishing to attend, commit to a full session of zazen at a time.  But if you must arrive late or leave early, try to do so during kinhin or between zazen periods, as you would if you were attending an in-person session 🙂
Hope to see you then!
