Schedule for New Year’s

Winter break is over, and the Center is gearing up for New Year’s Eve on Sunday. First, a reminder that there are no in-person sittings at Arnold Park and Chapin Mill on Sunday morning. The evening begins at 8 pm and runs through midnight. We’ll be doing plenty of zazen as well as chanting, a repentance ceremony, and a candle lighting ceremony just before midnight. If you’re not able to make it by 8:00, but would like to be here for the finale, it’s OK to arrive (or to leave for that matter) at the tea and coffee break that starts around 10 pm.

Here’s the full schedule.

More weekly dokusan at CM

In addition to Monday evenings, Dhara-sensei will now offer dokusan at Chapin Mill on Thursday mornings.
