January 10th – Poems for a New Year
In some Zen temples, there is a tradition of ending the year and beginning a new year by writing a poem of reflection. This comes out of the Japanese tradition of writing death poems or what is called “jisei”, a farewell poem to life. Shintai will offer a talk and lead discussion about this tradition. There will also be time for you to reflect and create our own poem if you want to. No poetic aptitude required!
