Ringing in the New Year: Welcoming 2022 Year of the Tiger

January 1, 2022

10:30 pm to 1:00 am PST


A wonderful chance to get together and renew our commitment to practice for the New Year. Join the community for traditional informal noodles in the Sangha house. At exactly midnight following a short period of zazen to close the year, everyone will get a chance to ring SMZC's great bell 108 times to welcome in the New Year of the Tiger. Bring a small piece of paper inscribed with any Karmic hindrances you wish to burn away during the ceremony. Refreshments offered following the ceremony.
