Our summer 2018 Shuso Hossen Ceremony is Sunday August 19th at 10 am at the Grail retreat center in Cornwall on Hudson, NY. In the ceremony, Ian Daishi Koebner will become a senior student and further his commitment to the Village Zendo.
For more information about our Summer Ango retreat, and for directions, visit our Summer Ango page.
Shuso Hossen is a joyous celebration marking a student’s promotion to the rank of Senior. It takes place at the conclusion of the intensive training period of Ango, during which the student serves as a model and practice leader. Daishi will give his first dharma talk and will take questions from the community in a ceremonial conversation known as Dharma Combat.
Please arrive by 10:00am. Refreshments will be served. No registration required.
Please consider a $20 voluntary donation to cover event costs.
