Full Moon Precept Ceremony

Full Moon Ceremony give us a chance, on the full moon, to reflect on one of the ten Precepts we take up as Zen Buddhists. We discuss, for example, the Precept of not killing, or not indulging in anger, with members of the sangha. We speak from the heart about our own daily experience with each Precept and listen deeply to the reflections of others. All sharing is confidential.

Precepts for contemplation:

April 10 & 12, 2017: Not sparing the Dharma Assets

June 12 & 14, 2017: Not Indulging in Anger

August 7 & 9, 2017: Not Defaming the Three Treasures

December 4 & 6, 2017:  Not Killing
