ROHATSU SESSHIN - NOV 26th to DEC 2nd      

 

You are all invited to attend Rohatsu Sesshin, our one and only

sesshin of the year at Zenshuji. (A sesshin is a week-long retreat

in which people devote themselves to zazen.) This year, Rohatsu

Sesshin will begin on Sunday, Nov. 26th, and conclude at

midnight on Sat. Dec. 2nd.

 

Three meals will be served each day. For those who plan to join us for meals, it would be good to know if you are planning to eat with us. If you are planning to sit for quite a bit of the sesshin, please send an email to webmaster@zenshuji.org to register. We often get more people sitting with us on Sunday and particularly on Saturday, the last day. There is a suggested donation of $50- 150, on a sliding scale depending on your situation. Please come and join us, even if you can only sit for an hour or two.

MOCHITSUKI & MOCHI ORDER

 

We will have the annual end-of-the-year Mochitsuki (mochi pounding) at Zenshuji on Sunday  December 17th from 7am to 4pm. We need a lot of muscle power to pound a lot of mochi rice. Please help us whenever you can. If you are ordering mochi, please mail/hand in the mochi order form below by the 12th. Every year we have people asking to buy but they did not order.   Remember, we order the mochigome (mochi rice) by the order form counts.   Please help us to be more accurate.  Order As Soon As Possible.

One pound of small mochi = $5; Okasane-Mochi 1 set = $8

 

We also have Mochigome washing on Saturday,

December 16th from 8am.

 

Here is the mochi order form of this year. Please order by 12/12.

END THE YEAR WITH YEAR-END SERVICE

 

Our Year-End service will be at 4 pm on December 31st. Please join us to end the year calmly and spiritually.
