COVID-19 Community Care Practice
Masking is currently optional for our Sunday Public Program as well as classes, gatherings and private events unless specified by the teacher. Clouds in Water will continue to offer Zoom/In-person hybrid options for nearly all of our classes and gatherings. We respectfully request that in-person participants are vaccinated/boosted for COVID-19. We will not require proof of vaccination. Thank you for your flexibility and care.
Clouds in Water offers regular talking circles where sangha members can share thoughts and feelings on various topics. In these circles we will invite you to speak from a zazen place, opening to spaciousness, ease and not-knowing. Our community will be stronger as we listen to more voices. Councils will be in person and on Zoom. Zoom Link. Meeting ID: 889 6825 9373 Passcode: 628788

Please join us for the first annual celebration and exploration of Buddha’s Robe. This multi-day event is hosted by Dharma Field Zen Center, Minnesota Zen Center and Clouds in Water Zen Center. We hope that the offerings will encourage the curious and long-time practitioners.
