Helpful Terms and Procedures

Taking care of each other:Our Sangha practices within the Maria Kannon tradition where each member is asked to step into any service role they see needs doing - feel free to help set up or clean up the zendo, serve tea, ring the bell to call everyone to sitting, strike the Mokugyo as the heart beat of the Sangha's chanting, ask to lead walking meditation, or if you are a member of the Salem Unitarian Universalist Congregation - to serve as the evening welcomer who starts and ends each gathering with a short greeting. Always feel free to ask about any terms or procedures or for training to do any service position.
