*updated* ODC transitions to Saturday Meditation online

Dear Ozarks Dharma Community,

As you know, the novel coronavirus situation continues to evolve rapidly. Our healthcare leaders have advised that reduced in-person interaction can help slow transmission of this virus. We live in an interdependent world, and can work together to reduce the potential for harm to ourselves and others.

It is in this light that Ozarks Dharma Community has decided to suspend our regular in-person sessions on Saturday mornings and Thursday evenings until further notice. That said, we will continue to connect with one another, and to meditate together on Saturday mornings in a virtual setting, online using Zoom.

We will begin to meet online starting Saturday, March 21st. Below is the URL/link that you can click on to join a “zoom meeting” to participate in our Saturday morning online sessions, as well as links and numbers you may need if joining by phone:

Recovery Dharma leadership will communicate separately with their community concerning their Tuesday night meetings. ODC’s outreach committee will provide further information regarding feeding the food insecure at Grace Church. And our upcoming Saturday study series on the eightfold path will be postponed until we are meeting again in-person.

If you want more information about the novel coronavirus issue in general, you can visit the the CDC website. For local information here in Springfield, you can visit https://www.springfieldmo.gov/2853/Health.

May all beings be safe, and may all beings be well.

With Metta,
Ozarks Dharma Community Board and Facilitators
