As members of the Mid City Zen Sangha, we:
Fully and wholeheartedly participate in our forms and rituals (such as bowing, facing the wall, slowly walking at breath’s pace)
We hold our forms lightly, in recognition that people may not know them, or feel comfortable or ready.
For new members and visitors, we warmly invite you to participate in our traditions according to your comfort level.
Practice care and consent.
Do not offer hands-on guidance for forms, posture, etc.
Ask permission before offering advice.
