Late Summer/Autumn 2021 Tahoma Guidance

Vaccination required at all events.
Masks required for indoor events.


As per WA State guidelines masks are required for indoor activities for the fully vaccinated. Additionally we will continue operate at 50% capacity and the zendo has been setup with this in mind. If one finds each seat in the Zendo occupied we ask that you come at another time. 

We are limiting drop-in attendance to our events to evening zazen only. Be prepared to show proof of vaccination. Our morning chant service and Sunday Zazenkai will not be available for in-person attendance.  Zazenkai will continue to be offered virtually.

It is still best practice to stay home if you feel sick and to continue to regularly wash your hands and use hand sanitizer.

While we welcome people to freely enjoy the trails we caution against visitation at this time especially if you have traveled from afar. We ask those who do come, to stay primarily on the trails and avoid the monastery grounds during our work period (8:30-1pm) Larger groups are discouraged and should be masked. Our buildings remain closed to drop in visitors.
