Join us as we spend the weekend honoring the memory of Jikoji founder Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi. We begin Friday with a social dinner followed by a walk to the ridge in appreciation of the Santa Cruz Mountains so much a part of Kobun's vision for Jikoji. Our formal program starts Saturday with periods of zazen and readings from Kobun’s transcripts. More information.
Our "First Saturday" Zazenkai is a day-long dive into intensive, silent practice, deepening our zen meditation. Our special Sunrise Zazenkai begins with a gentle pre-dawn walk up to the ridge, where we'll sit outdoor zazen and greet the morning sun over the Santa Cruz Mountains, before returning for breakfast and the start of our traditional Zazenkai schedule.
