UPCOMING EVENTS: (contact info at bottom of page)
DBZ, Garden volunteers are welcome any time. Please call ahead to let us know your plans.
NYZ, Sangha Night, November 26, 7 to 9 p.m. Please join us for the evening sits followed by tea and conversation. Since we all attend the zendo at different times, this is an opportunity to come together as a sangha, to meet, greet, and get to know one another. Members and nonmembers, old-timers and newcomers- all are welcome!
DBZ, Thanksgiving Celebration, November 27 - 28. We invite you and your family to join us for our yearly Thanksgiving dinner. The celebration will begin with a Dharma talk by Shinge Roshi on Thursday afternoon, followed by a delicious vegetarian feast. An informal brunch on Friday will conclude the event, but guests will be welcome to linger and enjoy the monastery and grounds.
DBZ, Rohatsu Sesshin, November 30 - December 8. Rohatsu (a Japanese word meaning "the eighth day of the last month of the year") Sesshin is held each year in Zen monasteries throughout the world to commemorate the enlightenment of Shakyamuni Buddha, which occurred when he saw a star at dawn on the eighth day of his retreat. In this intensive sesshin, we manifest the Buddha's determination as he sat beneath the Bodhi tree, vowing not to rise until he achieved true awakening. Every student contributes to and takes strength from the powerful energy and determination of all, creating an unsurpassed opportunity for deep practice and realization.
NYZ, Rohatsu Week, December 1 - 8.
NYZ, Fall Training Closing All-Day Sit, December 13.
