Dear Jikoji Sangha & Visitors: This Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (August 17 - 19) we will be performing scheduled maintenance on our domestic water tank. Therefore, all water to all of our buildings will be interruped during this period. We apologize for this inconvenience and ask that you please factor this into your plans if visiting Jikoji this weekend. This notice will be taken down once water is again flowing. Gassho.

A Drum Of Bone A Whistle of Silver

Poems by Angie Boissevain

Angie, November 2018 20181108_150145.jpg

"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.
