Zen New Year’s Eve: Fire, Bells, and Noodles

Sunday December 31, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 12:30 am

Please join us in-person at our Lincoln Square zendo or online (hybrid event).
After reflecting upon the past year, we will ritually let go of what holds us back from caring presence and upright activity with fire and sound. After the year turns at midnight, we will enjoy traditional japanese noodles prepared by our sangha member David Weiner and toast 2024 with sparkling apple cider.

All are welcome to come and go during any portion of the evening.
