  3. Hello, we’re bringing some people from our Temple in San Diego, all English speakers. Can you elaborate on how to receive the English translation? Do we all need to bring headphones and log into Zoom on our smartphones?

    • We don’t have a record with this email you provided. you may have to wait until later in the week when we have more spots open.

  4. Hi. We have a handful of our Sangha members coming up from San Diego, all English speakers. Can you clarify how the “simultaneous translation to English on Zoom” will work? Should we tell people to bring earbuds and a smartphone to log into Zoom? Or is there another method of getting the English translation of the talk? Thanks!

  5. Can you please explain how we will be able to access the translation to English if we will be in person for this event? Zoom is mention but if I remember correctly, headphones are available?

  6. When I click the “Finish” button on the on-line registration form, I see “Value must be less than or equal to 0” under the “total guests.” There is a value of “1” displayed there, which I can not change.
    How true! Yes, I am attempting to rein in my ego. I have not reached Nirvana yet.

  7. Hello!! I was hoping to attend this but it is already full. When will the next Day of Mindfulness be?

  8. We have some people that need to cancel. How do they go about that so others can get their tickets? Can people transfer a ticket or do the names have to match?

  9. trying to reserve, website is malfunctioning. It said there were 5 slots, now zero but it wouldn’t allow me to reserve. I would deeply appreciate 2 spots for my daughter and I

      • Hello, I am so sorry but I will be unable to attend tomorrow and cannot find a link to cancel. I hope someone can take my spot. I look forward to joining everyone next time.
