With Erie county now being designated as being a low risk area, and the COVID metrics being favorable, the Buffalo Zen Dharma Community Organizing Council has started the process of returning to in-person group events. The two main areas of review are the Tuesday night programs at Westminster Presbyterian Church and the monthly half-day meditations at the Network of Religious Communities building. There are a lot of things that need to be considered. A recent organizing council survey was sent out and this coming Saturday the 26th of March the council will be meeting to address only this one topic. Eventually, the ideas will be shared with the community (sangha) at large. One of the things that needs to be done is an the Organizing Counting being updated on what the COVID precautions at Westminster Presbyterian Church are at this time.
If anyone has an interest in sharing their opinion with the Organizing Council regarding in-group activities (their starting and how they will be run), please feel free to contact any member of the Organizing Council. Their contact information is listed on the "Members" page of this website
