The New Year’s Eve Celebration is back in person at Brooklyn Zen Center! After holding this celebrating online for the past two years, we are very happy to bring back this cherish BZC tradition to our temple in Brooklyn. This will be BZC’s 16th annual New Year’s Eve Celebration and Sit!

The festivities will start at 8 pm with a period of temple cleaning (the doors will open at 7:45). At 9:30 pm we’ll have noodle soup. Starting at 10:30, we’ll sit three periods of zazen, the third of which will go until just past midnight. During the last period, we’ll sound 108 bells that will ring in the New Year. This is a very sweet, joyful and peaceful way to celebrate this transition — and there’s also something very powerful about sitting quietly in the zendo while the city erupts with its own celebrations all around you.

The tickets for this event will be forthcoming.

Please consider your financial position in the context of dana and purchase tickets at the level appropriate for you so that we can ensure accessibility to the entire sangha.
