A Ceremony for Those Who Have Died

October 29, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

Event Card

Teachers: Hoka Chris Fortin & Jennifer Block
Location: San Francisco Zen Center Online (on Zoom)

Jizo Bodhisattva is the bodhisattva of fearlessly shepherding those who are crossing realms: from life into death, from birth into life, from a place of the known into the unknown.

The Jizo ceremony, traditionally focused on protection and nurturance for children who have died, is one that calls forth the qualities of Jizo: unconditional love, great commitment, and unshakable fearlessness. In this ceremony, we will draw upon the power of Jizo as we turn fully towards the deep process of grieving and letting go of loved ones who have died.

While traditionally we gather in person for this ceremony, we have adapted this ceremony to an online format to support one another, even as our ability to join together in person is restricted.
