Jikoji invites applications for residency. There are also opportunities for short-term residents. We are particularly interested in recruiting zen practitioners who might eventually join our staff, or complement our staff.
Any residency starts with a trial period, subject to mutually agreeable terms that frequently include a break between the initial trial and commitments for longer arrangements. Trial and short term residents are asked to practice as well as to work with the staff for a few hours/day. Longer term visitors also contribute several hours of work per day and practice cooperatively with our staff.
Visiting residents are required to pay the daily dorm or room Rental Rates or, longer term, a $400/month fee.
A small number of practitioners maintains Jikoji. Our practice includes morning and evening Zazen weekdays and a Sunday program, as well as four to six sesshins per year. Jikoji serves as a lay practice center for its extended Sangha, and at times hosts other meditation groups' rentals of some or all of Jikoji's facilities.
