Kobun Memorial Weekend

Join us as we spend the weekend honoring the memory of Jikoji founder Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi. We begin Friday with a social dinner, then 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.
