SPECIAL WEEKEND EVENTS AT OPEN MIND ZEN NAPLES

SATURDAY, AUGUST 31st & SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2019 

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO HURRICANE DORIAN. It will be rescheduled in the near future.

We are happy to announce that  Dave “Jitsusan” Vititoe, an Open Mind Zen Assistant Teacher, will be visiting the Naples Center next Saturday and Sunday, August 31st and September 1st. 

On Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., Jitsusan will lead an Introduction to Zen Liturgy and practice the Open Mind Zen Service with the community. Jitsusan  has a deep understanding of Zen Liturgy and practice.
The event will begin with sitting meditation (zazen) and walking meditation (kinhin).  Jitsusan will then give an explanation regarding Zen Liturgy, followed by the Service.
Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in this ancient tradition.  After the Service, all are welcome to join us for lunch at Food and Thought.

On Sunday at 10:00 a.m., Jitsusan will offer daisan (interviews) during the sitting and give the Dharma Talk.
Those interested in staying at the Center for Zazenkai (day long meditation) can bring a lunch or return at 12:30.  Zazankai will end at 3:30 p.m. and include light yoga/mindful movements.  Jitsusan will be receiving Dharma Transmission later this fall and this an opportunity to practice with OMZ’s next Sensei.  Please join us for one or both events. Everyone is welcome.
