Groups open to join – training involved
People on the doan-ryo list perform roles in the zendo during zazen and services – for instance, timing meditation periods, ringing bells during chanting. Other positions help to keep the zendo running smoothly during weekly programs and special retreats. Volunteers are welcome! Anyone interested in training for one of these positions should contact the ino (zendo coordinator) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
