10pm (Dec 10) to 7am (Dec 12) All-Night Sit

December 10 @ 10:00 pm - December 11 @ 7:00 am

Night sky with orange moon obscured by clouds.

Please join us for our Enlightenment Day services taking place Saturday and Sunday, December 10 and 11.

As the story goes, the night before his enlightenment, the Buddha sat all night under the bodhi tree, until he saw the morning star and came to a great realization.

We sit all night, from 10 PM to 7AM the next morning. From 7:15 – 8:15 we have breakfast. There is a ceremony commemorating the Buddha’s enlightenment at 8:30 on Sunday, Dec 11. You’re welcome to join us for any and all parts of this night/morning. Feel free to come and go as you need. Those who sit all night welcome and appreciate the energy of new people dropping in (IN-PERSON AND ON ZOOM). Formal tea will be served during the night.

During the night, we typically sit for 20-25 minute intervals and then walk outside, weather permitting.

A schedule of events:
10pm- Dec 10- 7:00am 11 Dec: All-night Meditation.
7:15- 8:15 am Breakfast
8:30 am- Enlightenment Day Ceremony- All are Invited.

The ceremony will be followed by walking meditation and one Zazen period- we will finish by 10am.
