Welcome to O-An Zendo
O-An has cancelled all public gatherings March 12 through April 5, 2020.
We are taking this unprecedented step out of an abundance of concern for the health and safety of our community in an effort to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We will continue to monitor this rapidly changing situation and will be reevaluating as circumstances warrant. Updates to our schedule will be posted here.
Please note that this cancellation includes our regular Sunday Meditation Service, Wednesday evening Book Discussion, our monthly Full-Day Program, and our Yoga and Tai Chi classes.
At this time, the Zendo will remain open to anyone wishing to practice individually. Additionally, dokusan with our Resident Teacher is still available upon request.
In times of increased stress and anxiety, the Buddha's teachings on calming body and mind and bringing mindful attention to every aspect of our daily lives are ever more precious. We wish that you and your loved ones remain in good health.
As we chant on Sundays: May all beings be happy. May they be joyous and live in safety.
With a gassho and wishes for your well-being,
The O-An Board of Directors
