Topics for This Blog

Hello FZ Sangha!

This blog (web log) is available to all FZ sangha members, to share ideas, have discussions, and generally create a parallel online community to our zazen practice. I hope that FZ members from across the U.S. and Europe, where Angie has sangha ties, will join in this blog.
The question at this point is: What topics would be of interest (and appropriate) for this forum. Some initial ideas inlcude:

  • Practice questions, addressed to Angie and hopefully answered by her, for the benefit of other sangha members as well as the original questioner.
  • Practice questions, addressed to the sangha as a whole. Many people have experience and opinions of benefit to others, and are most welcome.
  • Recommended reading or web sites (I have created categories for these items, as I suspect there may be many good suggestions).

A reminder: Please don’t post time-sensitive annoucements (such as business meeting dates, events occuring at other zendos) on this blog. Instead, use the Floating Zendo Zazen Yahoo Group for rapid email distribution.

An email (sent separately) includes instructions on logging in and how to make postings such as this.

I look forward to some good topics (that can be turned into “categories” so postings will be easy to locate), and then some good conversation!

… Dan

New Presentation/Template for FZ

Filed under: Uncategorized — fzsangha at 10:04 pm on Thursday, October 5, 2006

Hi FZ,
I hope you enjoy the latest look and feel (”template”) for our website/blog.

The most obvious change is the graphic on the top of each page, with pictures from San Jose and the sesshin in Carmel.

I have added a “theme switcher” menu item, on the right column, which allows users to change how the site looks to them, but it’s not working quite right yet. Apologies.

I look forward to your feedback on the site layout and content.     … Dan
