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 five Red Cedar members will receive the precepts: Elizabeth MacDonald, Judith Koontz, Laughing Owl Tydnall, Rei Greene, and Wayne Weinschenk  will receive the precepts from Nomon Tim Burnett with the support of Seishu John Wiley 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.

6am - 3pm - Half-Day Sesshin with oryoki breakfast and lunch - please RSVP

3pm - 5pm Jukai Ceremony and Reception - please RSVP

Please join us in the celebration of ethical practice and community.
