Members who have been practicing with the sangha for some time and who wish to deepen and extend their practice may want to consider joining our Mountain Staff training program. Members of Mountain Staff take turns in various roles that support the sangha in core practices of weekly zazen, ceremonies and extended sittings. Positions within Mountain Staff include anja (altar attendant), jiki (timekeeper), jisha (attendant), tanto (monitor) and other leadership positions. Through Mountain Staff practices, we learn to be responsive in the moment and to deepen our own practice while contributing to the practice of others in the community. For more information, please contact the office.
