We have a New Year tradition that is nearly as old as our Wet Mountain Sangha. We gather together for meditation, ringing of the Temple Bell 108 times (a much much older tradition,) good food and conversation. Anyone and everyone is invited - teachers and first time visitors, family and regular members. It is a great opportunity to celebrate the New Years moment. We also get to talk with each other which is a treat for those who spend so much time sharing silence.
Normally we meet on January 1st, but because that date is a Sunday this year we have made some adjustments.
THIS YEAR OUR NEW YEAR EVENT IS ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 31!!
