Denko-e Sesshin (“Transmission of Light Assembly”) is one of a cycle of four traditional sesshins initiated by Jikoji founder Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi. It is Jikoji’s traditional fall teaching sesshin, with a lighter zazen schedule and emphasis on dharma study, and how we carry our practice into our daily lives. More.

 

A Drum Of Bone A Whistle of Silver

Poems by Angie Boissevain

"These are poems in love with the fleeting world--that travel through its dense underbrush and listen to its secrets. Poems in which the the bees' "solemn feeding," is lifted into ceremony. In which life is a book, "inscribed/on the antlers of a deer,/in the thin red bark of manzanita." There is much wisdom and pleasure to be found in this raucous assembly." Danusha Lameris

Angie Boissevain helped found Jikoji with Kobun and was our first director and one of our earliest teachers. She leads weekly practice at Floating Zendo in San Jose. With her agile mind and total presence, Angie has guided many students towards a deeper zen practice and understanding of the dharma. She lives in semi-retirement in San Jose with her cane and her cat. More.
