I have also updated the post about our upcoming (Feb. 16) Dream Koan Workshop for Zen Peacemakers International with the registration link. (Note: registration closes after the second session, March 2nd) It would be wonderful to have you join us!

Fun stuff! I got to perform my first Buddhist wedding ceremony for my niece this past weekend in Charlestown, Rhode Island. It was a wonderful experience (at least for me!). As such, it was a rare and special treasure to be in the company of family, especially in these somewhat isolating times. Also joy to be at the sea (Narragansett beach), despite the freezing cold! Since I’ve been traveling, I’ll be only on zoom this week but Zenho will be at the Tea House in person.

Deep peace, great love,

Issan Mugai

Happy New Year!

On this most auspicious day please join us for the recitation of the Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra at 6:30 AM (Mtn time) on Saturday in person or via zoom (access zoom link on website).

May all negative circumstances be pacified and all positive circumstances present in abundance.

May awareness take itโ€™s very own seat resting in naturalness.

May all beings awaken to the light of their true nature!


Zen Peacemakers International Dream Koan Workshop

Zenho and Issan will be offering a Dream Koan Workshop through Zen Peacemakers International (ZPI). After offering 2 introductory talks earlier this year which resonated with the ZPI community, Mysoshin Moto-Sanchez, Director of Programs for ZPI, invited us to create an 8 session workshop for the community. All are welcome to attend.
