Full Moon Precept Ceremony

MEASURES TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF COVID 19:

The Board and teachers have decided to cancel activities over April and May to minimise the risk of Covid 19 to ourselves and spreading through the sangha.

The Annandale zendo will be closed till further notice. But you can still connect with the teachers and the sangha:

Monday evenings

On-line practice community dojo (via Zoom) with Subhana Barzaghi.

Schedule outline:  We will have a brief introduction with some guidelines on how to use Zoom.  Followed by 20 minutes guided meditation, perhaps a short talk and then a sharing.  We’ll end the meeting with Great Vows at 8.30 pm.

You’ll need to login to the meeting using:

https://zoom.us/j/893105189
Meeting ID: 893 105 189

If this is the first time you have used Zoom, you will need to install a web browser client, which will download automatically when you join the meeting.  Please allow a few minutes to do this, so that you are ready to start at 7.00 pm.

So that we can plan numbers, please RSVP info@szc.org.au if you intend joining these meetings.

Wednesday evenings

If you are interested in participating in Wednesday night group sitting, with Gillian Coote, from the comfort of your own home, please express your interest by e-mail to info@szc.org.au.

The Board wishes you all a safe time ahead. And in this time of uncertainty we recommend you maintain your practice and remember to breathe and stay connected.

********

Full Moon Ceremony give us a chance, on the full moon, to reflect on one of the ten Precepts we take up as Zen Buddhists. We discuss, for example, the Precept of not killing, or not indulging in anger, with members of the sangha. We speak from the heart about our own daily experience with each Precept and listen deeply to the reflections of others. All sharing is confidential.
