Celebrating in a meaningful and above all mindful way
We offer an alternative to both, New Year's Eve loneliness and partying with lots of substance abuse and perhaps shallow company.
We begin meditation at 8 p.m., interspersed with special kinhin, dharma talks and other mindful activities. We ring the temple bell 107 times* right before midnight* and one time on New Year’s Day itself, just past midnight. Then we immediately join in a joyous party with seasonal foods & beverages.
Due to a minimum number of participants required for this event, we ask anyone interested to sign up below. The deadline is December 26.
