Dharma Sharing

Dharma Sharing is an opportunity to share with each other about our meditation experience, Dharma readings and other aspects of our practice, or any aspect of our life. When we want to share we bow to the Sangha and the Sangha bows back. We bow again when we are finished sharing and again the Sangha bows back.

This is a time to practice listening with our hearts and speaking from our hearts.

IN THE ZOOM ZENDO before you bow in un-mute your mic, and after you bow out re-mute your mic.
