Phoenix hatching!

Ekoji’s website has been renewed — and our temple has been renewed as well. A renovation of the downstairs includes a new heating/cooling system, removal of old carpet and refurbishment of original wood floor, freshened paint all around, improved lighting, planters and a pendant light on the porch, and many other details. We will soon install new benches in the garden, which will allow for small groups to meditate with individuals at safe distances from each other. 

We didn’t plan it this way, but closing the temple for Covid-19 at least allowed us to do the work without disruption to practice meetings. And we found we could gather, albeit virtually, to meditate and discuss the Buddha dharma. 

We’re all looking forward to in-person gatherings in our renewed meditation hall and garden!
