Planting Zen in Siskiyou Square
Last week’s Jukai sesshin was a great success. Here is the group of those taking the Precepts, along with the preceptor, shuso, jisha, and jikko. We jumped into using the new kitchen, even though it’s not quite complete. Still, it is functional, and we are enjoying its many features. The Sodo continues to move towards completion daily, thanks to all your wonderful gifts and continuing pledges, and the work of many dedicated volunteers.
In addition to regular Wednesday work parties (~9:30am-4pm), we can use help from all volunteers anytime that we’re on schedule and not on retreat (i.e., not this week, as we are on retreat). We have several greatly appreciated volunteers who come regularly on Wednesdays and other times. Just let Ikuo [ikuohull at gmail.com] know beforehand so we can count you in for lunch. Zazen is in the Sodo from 11:30am to 12:25pm, with lunch served at the Sodo at 12:30.
