By consensus vote, the Sangha has agreed to change our meeting schedule to Sundays 4:00-5:30 p.m. during the winter and 5:00-6:30 pm during the summer. The changeovers will be at the Spring equinox (March 20, 2022) and the Fall equinox (September 22, 2022 ). Reminders of the meeting time changes will be included in the weekly emails around the times of the changeovers.
Until further notice, we continue to have hybrid meetings, both in person and by Zoom. To get the Zoom logon information, or to get on our weekly email list, you can contact any one of us.
Here is a list of planned topics for upcoming meetings through August. Please join us in person from 5-6:30 p.m. on Sunday evenings at the Albuquerque Zen Center, 2300 Garfield Ave. SE. We will be conducting hybrid (with Zoom) meetings for the time being, but may phase down the hybrid portion of the meetings to every other week before long. Please contact a Sangha member if you are interested in joining by Zoom. We encourage everyone to connect with a local Sangha in person.

Here’s a tentative list of topics for upcoming meetings (subject to modification). Please feel free to join us by Zoom, or (if a hybrid meeting) in person at the Albuquerque Zen Center. Please contact us if you’d like to be added to the weekly email announcements list.
