Rocks and Clouds Zendo

Dear Friends,


(1) Roshi Daniel is back in town and will be with us tonight for zazen, tea, and talk beginning at the usual time 7:00 PM.

(2) Reminder, since Roshi is back in town, sitting with dokusan will be held this coming Friday 9/15/17 beginning at 6:00 AM and on the following Fridays.

(3)  Next Zazenkai is Sunday 09/17/17.   Please call or email Roshi or me to let us know if you are coming, if you haven’t already.

The day is scheduled to be from 5:55 AM to 4:00 PM with breakfast and lunch included, eating oryoki style. Bowl sets can be provided if you don’t have them, just let us know if you need them.

Remember we serve tea at 5:55 AM before the first sitting so it is best to arrive with enough time to get settled before tea is served. The planned schedule is attached.

Also, if you can’t come so early or for the full day, it is perfectly fine to come part time when you can. Just let us know what time you would be arriving.

The Next Zazenkai Days:

October 15 – Zazenkai

November 12 – Zazenkai

(4) Rohatsu Sesshin

Due to scheduling issues there are changes to our annual Sesshin dates and location.  This year’s Rohatsu will beSunday December 3 to Friday 12/08/2017, and will be held as St. Dorothy’s Rest in Camp Meeker, CA.

While it is usually best for our practice to attend the whole sesshin, we are happy to accommodate those who can only attend part time. Please let us know as soon as you can if you are able to join us and whether it will be full time or part time.
