Coming Up!

Coming up in the month of June we have two important events. First, on June 1 we have Appreciating Sangha. Second, on June 18 Genzo-e starts.

Appreciating Sangha

June 1 is the day that Dharma Rain holds its annual fundraiser. It is an afternoon of Food, Friends and Fun on our Siskiyou Campus. “Appreciating Sangha” is for everyone who has some interest in what we do here, or who knows someone who practices here.

It’s not just a fun time and a way to connect, it’s also important for the financial health and well-being of the temple. Proceeds are used to keep event prices low, and maintain our programs, and take care of our facilities and staff. Please take this opportunity to join us and celebrate.

Buying tickets in Advance is helpful for the temple to plan. You can buy tickets here or at the door. Cost: $25 per person, $50 couples or families.


Each summer we take a week and study a fascicle of Dogen’s Shobogenzo. This year we are working with the fascicle entitled, “Shin Fukatoku” (“The Mind Cannot be Grasped.)”

The sesshin is open, so you can register for the days that you able. Kyogen used to say that sesshin is the heart of our practice. Please consider joining Dharma Rain for this week of practice.

You can get more information and register on our website.

Wednesday Work Parties

Dharma Rain hosts regular Wednesday work parties from around 9am to 3:30pm. There is plenty of work for people to do, inside and outside, light and heavy. Come for as much or as little of the time as you wish. We have tools and gloves, but if you have your own, feel free to bring them. We have a mid-day sit from 11:30am to 12:25pm. If you are around at 12:30pm, we feed you lunch.
