2) Saturday January 2nd-  New Year’s ½ Day Renewal Retreat and Jizo Ceremony, 2-5pm

For this afternoon, we will come together to sit, reflect and make space for our personal and collective grief to honor and give closure to the challenges that we met in 2020, and make some room in our hearts and lives for renewal and continued healing in 2021.

We will sit zazen, share some teachings about Jizo Bodhisattva (the bodhisattva of fearlessness who supports us in feeling and expressing our grief and loss, and crossing over into realms of connection and healing), and meet with one another in small groups. We will then share together in a Jizo Ceremony where we make small offerings and entrust them to the care and tending of Jizo’s great capacity.
