Lay Entrustment Ceremony

Wed, May 31, 5:00 pm PT
Led by Norman

On May 31, we will hold a Lay Entrustment Ceremony for senior Everyday Zen practitioners Christopher Dumbleton and Steve Gross. Lay Entrustment is a new tradition in our lineage of appreciating and empowering senior lay members of our sangha as revered elders. Having practiced for many years, received jukai, and served as shuso, Lay Entrusted Teachers are installed in a public ceremony as new teachers of the  community.
