The Zen ceremony of jukai (literally "receiving precepts") is a ceremony of commitment to the Zen precepts, the Zen path, and the sangha. Done by lay students it marks a deepening of commitment to Zen and a warming of relationship with the teacher.
In this year's jukai three Red Cedar members will receive the precepts. Tuli Candela, Valerie Davenport, Bernadette Prinster and Karen Campbell will receive the precepts from Nomon Tim Burnett and Ryushin Andrea Thach.
The ceremony is preceded by a half-day sesshin with oryoki breakfast and lunch.
Please register for your attendance at either the full retreat or just the jukai ceremony. Small charge for the sesshin to cover food costs (discounted for RCZC members) or non-charge RSVP to attend just the ceremony at 3pm.
Donations to teachers are invited.
