Reopening of KCC Urban Center Is Delayed

July 1, 2021

We will not be reopening KCC’s Urban Center Sunday, July 4. We had hoped that we would be ready when Governor Brown lifted restrictions on group gatherings. And many of us have been trying hard to accomplish various tasks necessary for the reopening of our center, but it has become clear that it is not possible to open by this Sunday.

Peter W has put much effort into setting up the Audio/Video functions needed to bring Zoom into our Meditation Hall so that we can practice together. However, currently we’re still in a prototype phase rather than production phase, and we realized that if we want to do this in a sustainable way, we need to do more practice and refinement with the technology before going live on a regular basis.

In the future our goal is to Zoom all in-person Sunday activities plus Green Tara and Chenrezi practices and study groups. That will involve training the group leaders and a few more people to run the A/V equipment in addition to Zoom. AND, we anticipate the end result will be very satisfying for all…whether Zooming or in person!
