Conferring the Precepts - Jukai

In a ceremony known as "jukai," Guiding Teacher Konin Cardenas will confer the 16 bodhisattva precepts to one of her students, Deborah Silver. The student vows to take up an awakening life for self and others. It's a joyful moment for teacher and students alike, and family and friends too! The ceremony will take place at Empty Hand Zen Center on Saturday morning, August 26th. We'll begin at 9:00 am with to periods of zazen and then begin the ritual at 10:30 am. Light refreshments will be served afterward, as we celebrate a new commitment to the bodhisattva path!
