Cool mornings, warm afternoons. Our First Saturday Zazenkai is a full day immersion into intensive, silent practice. We start 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, before returning for breakfast and the start of our traditional Zazenkai schedule. All are welcome to join us for all or part of the day. More.
On the weekend of July 27-29, Jikoji honored the memory of our founder, Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi. Here, some links to help get acquainted with who Kobun was, his voice, and the special character of his thought.
