Starting Sunday Nov. 21st, Ancient Dragon Zen Gate will be meeting in person (with Zoom also available) for Sunday morning and Monday evening zazen and Dharma talks at Ebenezer Lutheran Church, 1650 W Foster Avenue. For CTA transportation take either the Damen (50), Clark (22), or Foster (92) buses. You can get the Damen bus at the Brown line Damen stop, and the Foster bus at the Red line Argyle stop. Exit the Damen and Foster bus at Foster & Paulina, and the Church is just a few steps away. There is also non-permit street parking in the area.
When you arrive at the church, enter through the center courtyard door. A greeter will meet you and ensure that you are checked in with proof of vaccination (see our COVID protocol below). On Sundays, go up the stairs and take an immediate right to the parlor for zazen. Another greeter will be stationed just outside the parlor to guide you. On Mondays, take a left down a set of stairs to the classroom for zazen, where a greeter will also guide you.
COVID protocol for Ebenezer Church
For our Ancient Dragon gatherings at Ebenezer Church, all participants must wear a mask and be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. You should not attend if you have a fever or are experiencing other symptoms of COVID. Please bring your vaccination card or a picture of your vaccination card the first time you attend an event at Ebenezer Lutheran Church. We will keep records of the vaccinations so that attendees will not need to show their vaccination cards after the first visit.
We will be sitting with social distancing. During services only the kokyo will chant. The rooms we use will have ventilation. Thank you for your cooperation.
