This year’s Zaike Tokudo (Jukai/Lay Ordina­tion Ceremony) will take place on Saturday, October 15, at 3:00 p.m. in the zendo. Heather Sarantis, Helen Cheng, Yoni Ackerman, and Joe Buckner will receive precepts, rakusu, and lineage papers from Hozan; Nick Robinson and Nathan Britton will receive from Ryushin Andrea Thach; Diane Ritchey will receive from Peter Overton; and Phillip Sherard and Ten Bartholomew will receive from Gerry Oliva.

Congratulations in advance to the ordinees, who have been studying and sewing diligently with our sewing teacher, Jean Selkirk, and with Hannah Meara. In-person attendance is limited to the guests of the ordinees and those with ceremony roles. Please join us in the online zendo for this joyous occasion!
