Saturday October 12, 2013 we will have an altered schedule for this one day from our normal weekly routine. We will have one single 9:25am zazen period followed by and in-depth Issan-Ji Temple Samu day.
We invite our Sangha to come and sit this period and if available and willing, help us deeply cleanse our temple and our twisted Karma all at once.

The Hartford Street Zen Center Sangha Council will occur post Buddha’s Birthday event and a quick break for lunch: We’ve formed council as a forum to continue to talk of and discuss with each other – and with the sangha at large – issues, concerns, questions and conflicts which have been challenging – downright hard to talk about or never seem to have an appropriate time we are all together to discuss. We’ll use a practice model of working with each other with the most skillful speech we can access. This is a great opportunity also for those who haven’t been around lately to reengage and be a part of the present and future Hartford Street!
Our next meeting will be on Saturday 12:30pm to 2:30pm, May 4, 2013 for 120 minutes (with a break included).
We’re continuing this format that is flexible enough for a diversity of needs. This session will be facilitated by Beata Chapman, a long time member and Board president of the Santa Cruz Zen Center. She is knowledgeable about many aspects of zen communities. The scaffold we’ll be working from is based on the Council process developed by the Ojai Foundation.
You do not need to have an ‘issue’ or overt concern to attend. Council is sangha building, connection and healing. All are welcome!
If you have questions regarding this, call Peter Goetz at 510.595.1281. If you’d like a copy of the Ojai Foundation guidelines for Council process, email Peter at firstname.lastname@example.org
