This Saturday, November 7, beginning at 3pm, and ending Sunday, November 8, at 6:30am we will hold a Founders Vigil at the Sodo. This date is close to the anniversaries of the deaths of both of our founders, Keido Chisan Koho Zenji (d. November 1, 1969) and Roshi Jiyu Kennett (d. November 6, 1996).
There is no leader for this vigil, but someone will be present the entire time, with people taking turns being awake so that someone is awake at all times. Vigilants can rest, sit, or do kinhin whenever they want. Sleeping pads are available. No sign-up required (except Sunday breakfast if you wish). The vigil ends Sunday morning just before breakfast, which will be available for those who sign up and wish to stay for it.
Please Note that you won’t be able to drive in to the property to park. Park at the Glenhaven Park parking lot at 82nd and Siskiyou, cross at the traffic light at that intersection, and walk south a short way to the path leading on to the property.
