SUNDAY SITTING
There will be sitting with daisan from 10am-noon on Sunday, December 3rd and December 17th.
NEW YEAR'S DAY BRUNCH
This January 1 from 11 am-2pm, we will  celebrate our traditional ZCSD New Years Day brunch at Elijah’s Restaurant behind the Soup Plantation Restaurant on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. (7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd). The room is large, there is plenty of parking and the food should be great. There will be a signup sheet and envelope for payment on the kitchen table.

The cost is $20 per person, and prepayment would be very helpful. But all are welcome and you can pay at the door if you decide to come at the last minute. We look forward to ringing in the new year with the sangha and our families and friends. 

We encourage you to use Paypal (added $1 charge).
