New Year’s Eve Zazen 2016

Please join us for extended sitting Saturday, New Year’s eve.

It’s been a challenging year for most everyone. Take advantage of this opportunity to reflect, breath deep, settle, and ground on this last night of 2016.

Open zazen will begin at 9:30. There will not be structured kinhin/walking periods, but people are welcome to stand, walk, or take breaks as needed; come for all or part. Enter and depart at any time. From 11:45-midnight, we will chant the Enmei Juku Kannon Gyo, a prayer for peace. At midnight, a bell will be struck 108 times, concluding the practice session. Please bring a snack or beverage to be shared afterwards.

Can you think of a better way to bring in the new year?
