Jukai Ceremony

Hybrid Hybrid Event
Jukai | Lay Ordination Ceremony
On Wednesday, May 8, Everyday Zen will hold a Jukai ceremony for lay ordainees. During this traditional ceremony, each student will receive and acknowledge the sixteen bodhisattva precepts as an ongoing path in their lives.

Each ordainee will also receive a Dharma name, simple robe (rakusu), and lineage papers tracing their position in our Soto Zen family as it comes down to us from the time of the Buddha.

This ceremony takes the place of Dharma Seminar this week. In-person attendees are expected to review and follow our current Covid protocol.

About Dharma Seminar

The topic of study in seminar typically centers on a classical text, sometimes with additional readings, and changes more or less every month. The focus of our study is always on the application of the teachings to our daily lives. Students are asked to attend all meetings in a given month or seminar series, if possible.

The evening begins with a period of zazen followed by lecture and small and large group discussion.

Attending at the Community Congregational Church in Tiburon

Please arrive early with time to settle in. Chairs are provided. If you prefer to sit on a zafu, please bring your own.

Attending Online

Please enter the Zoom seminar room in time to settle into your seat for zazen. We encourage you to join with your camera on and to sit in front of your camera or nearby, with downcast or closed eyes as we do in the zendo. But you are welcome to leave your camera off if that’s more comfortable for you.

Please remain muted unless you have been invited to speak during group discussion and in the breakout rooms for small group discussion.

Please join in the chants with your mic off and follow any links or instructions shared in the group chat by the Zoom host.
