Please come and join us at Tahoma Zen Monastery for our annual New Years Celebration. We will sit zazen from 8:30pm until approximately 11:15pm followed by a chant ceremony and the traditional 108 strikes on the temple Kansho Bell at midnight..
Feel free to join the zazen at any point, coming in during kinhin (walking meditation) or a stretch break. During the evening one can always “sit out” a period of zazen, leaving during a stretch break or kinhin and taking a break, having a snack, or what-have-you, returning during another kinhin or stretch break.
Please note that full vaccination including with the latest boosters continues to be required for all in-person events. Newcomers to our events should email us with a photo of their vaccination card.
