    In response the current health concerns, ZNS will be gathering online, beginning this week. This Tuesday evening, we'll sit together, chant together, and talk about the dharma—what we always do—but we'll also be doing doing it in a new way and asking for feedback. So if you've ever sat with us, please consider joining this first online meeting to be part of the discussion.
