If you’d like to start the new year fueled by zazen rather than by intoxicants or TV, come join with others in the Sangha for our annual celebration. We’ll welcome in the New Year on Saturday evening with sitting and ceremonies, starting at 8 pm and winding up a little past midnight. The ceremony (and sitting) will also be streamed on Zoom.  For the many members who join in, it’s an inspiring way to start the year out right. If you need the meeting ID and password, email Jissai at jissaip@rzc.org.
