Hello New Haven Zen Sangha!
Following the CT State Dept. of Health guidelines, the New Haven Zen Center will reopen for
public practice on Wednesday, June 16th, under the following guidelines:
- Masks will be worn at all times, by all participants. This policy is a very cautious one,
and will be reviewed often.
- We will go back to using the rear entrance. Hand sanitizer will be provided at that
- If you are in need of meditation instruction, please arrive 15 minutes early on a
Wednesday evening and someone will help you. Instruction will not be offered on
- If you feel sick in any way, please do not come to the ZC.
We are very excited to welcome the Sangha back to the Center!
It is our intention to continue to stream practice (including in-person) via the Zoom links located under the Resources and Links tab.
