Zen Center hosts special celebration


Sonoma Mountain Zen Center

Saturday September 16th 2017 - 11:00am to

On Saturday, Sept. 16, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., the Sonoma Mountain Zen Center will host “Manifesting the Heart, Building for the Future,” an event benefitting the construction of the center’s long-awaited Mandala Project, an expansion and remodel of SMZC’s residences, meditation hall and community building. The September event will be an elegant, intimate afternoon of Zen in the temple. Attendees will experience an authentic traditional Omotesenke tea ceremony, live musical performances, and a bento box lunch with dessert and refreshments under the ancient oak tree. There will be a raffle of original calligraphy by Jakusho Kwong-roshi, a North Bay getaway and wine country dinner, and more.

Tickets are limited and cost $100. Kids are free. Raffle tickets are $10. All proceeds go to the construction of the new temple buildings. Purchase in person, online at www.smzc.org/bazaar2017, or call 545-8105.
