Winter Solstice Sit 2019

In celebration of the Winter Solstice we will have our quarterly day of extended sitting. On Saturday December 21st, we will add several periods of uninterrupted zazen throughout the day. The regular daily schedule will be followed as normal and drop in attendance for any or all activities is encouraged. As always feel free to email us at with any questions.

As always practitioners are welcome to come for Friday evening zazen and stay through Sunday zazenkai. Those planning on attending all day, or desiring an extended weekend of practice at Tahoma are requested to contact us to make any needed arraignments.
