Friday, December 15: Winter Solstice Family Event. This night of reverence and stillness takes place within the candlelit meditation hall at Stone Creek Zen Center, near Sebastopol, CA. In silence, each child walks through a lush spiral of evergreen boughs, gathering candlelight at the center; and then returns back through the boughs, bringing their light into the world.
We’ll share the story of the Buddha’s enlightenment — a reminder that all things, each person, each pebble, flower, and animal, share the quality of innate goodness and light.
Candles in apple votives will be provided. Advance registration is requested.
Where: 2999 Bowen Street
When: Doors open at 4:30 pm, event begins at 5:00 pm
Monday, December 18: Sebastopol Sangha in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.

We will share sitting and walking meditation, a reading from Thich Nhat Hanh’s body of work, discussion, and tea.
