A few notes:
• If possible, please try to “arrive” 5 minutes before zazen begins, although you are welcome to join anytime during the period.
• We will be using be the same links and phone numbers for the meditation periods each day.
• Please mute your screen when you join the group and during zazen. This will eliminate background noise and the audio feedback loops that can occur. After each meditation period you can unmute and join in the chanting at the end.

Thank you again for your compassionate care for yourselves and each other.
