Our annual joint New Year’s Eve celebration is here this year. Join us and Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple (along with some folks from Great Vow Zen Monastery) here at the Sodo for a wonderful way to bring in the new year.

We begin with a vegetarian potluck at 7pm, and move into sacred dancing, meditation, ceremonies, and end at midnight with formal tea ceremony where priests serve sparkling cider to each person individually. The approximate schedule is as follows:

7pm – Potluck
8:30-9pm – Sacred Dance (led by Heart of Wisdom)
10pm – Fusatsu Ceremony (led by Heart of Wisdom)
10:30pm – Zazen & Kinhin with 108 tolls of the bell
11:30pm – New Year’s Ceremony (led by DRZC)
12:00 – Priests serve sparkling cider to all assembled
afterwards – 108 additional tolls of the bell to welcome new year
