Summer Day Sit at the Kudus House

Saturday July 15, 2017




$100/benefactor rate


Join us for a full day of sitting at a beautiful property on the north end of Vashon Island, inside a 2,500-square-foot joglo, a teak house imported from Kudus in Central Java.

Eko Jeff Kelley (Teacher, priest, and spiritual director of Seattle Soto Zen) will speak. Jeff came to the Seattle area in 2009 from Minnesota where he practiced Zen for fifteen years at Clouds in Water Zen Center in St. Paul, first with Dosho Mike Port and then with Byakuren Judith Ragir. He was ordained as a Soto Zen priest by Byakuren Judith Ragir in May of 2008 in the lineage of Dainin Katagiri Roshi.

Periods of sitting and walking meditation, dharma talk, discussion, work practice, and lunch will be included.

The day sit runs from 8:30am-4:45pm on Saturday July 15.

Register now to reserve your space–registration fees are $55 for members. $75 for nonmembers, and $100 for those who wish to support the Zen Center’s overall expenses at the benefactor level in addition to registering for the event.
