Enter the Virtual Zendo

Return to stillness every weekday online.

Daily zazen meditation practice is a critical foundation for our spiritual awakening practice, and students are encouraged to make a strong commitment to sitting meditation. We understand how difficult this can be to do alone, however, and are pleased to offer Virtual Zendo as a valuable practice aid.

In Virtual Zendo sessions, senior Hollow Bones practitioners volunteer to host periods of zazen meditation, as well as short social check-ins and opportunities for discussion. This takes place through Zoom calls, and people of all backgrounds and practice levels are encouraged to attend.

Join us to experience the support of the jewel of Sangha as we sit with compassion for all beings.
