Departing Ceremony for Tim Kroll (and Sangha Breakfast)

Friday, July 30th @ 7:30am

Join us in this brief, traditional ceremony that marks the departure of a resident practitioner from a training temple. Tim will be departing to drive to Tassajara Zen Mountain Center shortly after this ceremony. After morning chanting service we will offer bows as he passes us in a circumambulation of the zendo and hear words from Head Teacher Doshin Mako Voelkel as he leaves to follow his path of Zen & Tao to California and beyond. You must be registered with us as fully vaccinated to participate in-person. All are welcome to join us for the ceremony online.


There will be a community breakfast at 8:00am with Tim,  where we’ll be dining in the side yard. Please REGISTER no later than Wednesday eve 7/28 if you are interested in joining us (Covid restrictions to entry into the temple apply).

**UPDATE**: As of Monday morning we have 15 registered, so far with folks bringing Fruit Salad, Granola, Cinnamon Rolls and Veggie Quiche. Looking for ideas on what to bring? Beverages (OJ, Coffee, Tea, Creamer), Entrees, & other Sides welcome!
