Jukai Retreat

Portland, OR 97220
Kakumyo Lowe-Charde

Our annual vigil-style retreat leads up to people taking the Precepts. During the Jukai ceremony, individuals receive the Bodhisattva precepts and formally become Buddhists. Receiving Jukai at Dharma Rain is a very personal step toward clarifying and deepening one’s own intention to live as a Buddhist. This year’s Preceptor is Gyoshi Kaplan. The Jukai ceremony will take place at 10:30 AM on Sunday, February 18.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend this open retreat full- or part-time. Early morning program is available for drop-in in person or by Zoom. Evening program is available for in-person drop-in only. All are welcome free of charge for zazen and ceremonies. Registration is required for meals and overnights and must be received by Thursday, February 8.  Scholarship assistance is available to those in need. Here’s the schedule from 2023.
