AZC New Location, beginning June 2, 2019

Our move to Anchorage Community House in February of 2019 opened up new possibilities for practice and fellowship. 

Our current news is that Anchorage Community House has moved to a new, bigger space.  Beginning June 2 we’ll be meeting at ACH’s new location at the Turnagain Arts Building, 4105 East Turnagain Blvd, Suite A.

The building is on your right as you turn onto Turnagain Blvd off of Spenard.  Our new space is on the ground floor and you’ll see the Anchorage Community House sign as you pass the front of the building. Turn right into the parking lot and park in back.  We’ll enter through the East Entrance (door will be unlocked for our whole sitting time), and travel straight down the hallway through a common area to our space.  If you arrive between sittings you are welcome to wait in the common area or in the separate kitchen area in the new space.  

Meg and Zach of Anchorage Community House have been working a ton to get the space ready for us and even moved all our sitting gear over from the Church of Love!   We are so thankful for their hospitality and community vision.

Since we are a “pop-up” zendo in a shared space, Sunday Opening is a gift we can offer each other and the community. More on that here. We’ll continue to meet Sundays with the following schedule:

  • 8:00 AM Sunday Openers arrive
  • 8:30 AM Sitting Meditation / 8:55 AM Walking Meditation
  • 9:00 AM Sitting Meditation / 9:25 AM Walking Meditation
  • 9:00-9:30 AM Newcomer Instruction in an adjacent room
  • 9:30 AM Sitting Meditation / 9:55 AM Walking Meditation
  • 10:00 AM Chanting Service
  • 10:30 AM Teisho – Dharma Talk

Dharma school will continue to meet the fourth Sunday of each month during the school year. We’re looking forward to connecting at Anchorage Community House at the Turnagain Arts Building in Spenard. Please keep checking back for more information and updates.
