The Zen ceremony of jukai (literally "receiving precepts") is a ceremony of commitment to the Zen precepts, the Zen path, and the sangha. Done by lay students it marks a deepening of commitment and a warming of relationship with the teacher. Please register to RSVP (no fee).
Join use on Saturday October 29th for the ceremony of jukai in which Ken Oates, Jaren Hope-Leondard, and Ann Mickelson will receive the precepts from Nomon Tim Burnett.
The ceremony is preceded by our usual Saturday morning practice with potluck breakfast and then a day retreat from 10am to 3pm.
