Our 2019 Practice Period begins with Nehan-e sesshin (February 8-15) and ends with Tanjo-e sesshin (April 1- 7). Red Pine’s Heart Sutra commentary and Kobun’s Talks on the Heart Sutra are the primary texts. The Heart Sutra expresses the essence of Buddhist practice. Please join us for meditation and deeper study into this sutra. More information.
Our "First Saturday" Zazenkai is a full day immersion into intensive, silent practice, starting with a gentle pre-dawn walk to the ridge top for outdoor meditation, and to help the sun come up over the Santa Cruz Mountains. More information.
We invite you to find stillness in the woods that cradle our temple. Our schedule features several outdoor excursions along our paths, alternating with periods of zazen and walking meditation, tea and Dharma discussions. More information.
