For the sixth year in a row, NWLACC and friends will welcome in the New Year with the help of Whidbey Island’s Tahoma One Drop Zen Monastery. This year, we are greatly honored to have our ceremony led by Shodo Harada Roshi, Tahoma’s founder, and the abbott of the three-hundred-year old Sogenji temple in Okayama, Japan. Members of the public from all faiths and traditions are invited to join us in a nondenominational celebration of our common humanity and the setting of intentions for the New Year, including ringing the 108 bells, while learning about some of the ancient New Year’s traditions of Japan.
Following the ceremony, light refreshments will be served. The event is open and free of charge; no reservations are required. Visit nwlacc.org to learn about all of NWLACC’s programs and offerings.Visit the official website…
