New Year's Eve
Please join us as we celebrate the New Year.
We realized that this will be the last year Dharma Rain will be at the Portland Dharma Center. In honor of the end of an era and our long-term connection there, we're switching venues to the Portland Dharma Center this year.
The evening begins with a potluck dinner at 7pm. Dinner is followed by very simple circle dances (which anyone can do).
After that there is a Fusatsu (repentance and renewal of vows) ceremony. We then sit zazen through the new year, listening to fireworks and mayhem in the streets outside. The evening ends with a ceremonial serving of sparkling cider at about midnight.
This will be a wonderful evening, appropriate for the whole family.
Please bring a vegetarian dish to share.
