There will be sitting with daisan from 10am-noon on Sunday, December 16th.
Please consider Zen Center San Diego on your end-of-year donation list. Your contributions help to maintain any structural repairs for the two houses, sheds, and grounds. They also help us balance the books and avoid raising sesshin fees and membership dues. Donations are tax deductible. We welcome your support. Checks can be sent to ZCSD, 2047 Felspar Street, San Diego, CA 92109-3551. You may also donate online via Paypal.
Enrollment is open for the five-day December sesshin (December 26-31).   This is a 5-day sesshin, but you have the option of applying to attend the first 3 days or last 3 days. Preference will be given to those who can attend all 5 days. Everyone is asked to attend the opening evening.
Enrollment is open for the three-day February sesshin (Friday, February 15 through Monday, February 18). This sesshin usually fills up quickly, so if you would like to attend, please send in your application on time.
Board Election
The election process for the 2019 ZCSD board has begun. Phase 1 consists of the confidential nomination of up to 5 current members. A list of members in good standing is on the kitchen counter. Any member can nominate up to 5 people from that list and place their nominations in the suggestion box.  After the nomination process is over, nominees will be directly contacted regarding their interest in serving on the board. Based on these responses, a final slate will be developed for the official election. 
The December Newsletter includes announcements and an article: Making Peace with Helplessness.
The New Year’s Brunch will be at Elijah’s Restaurant in Clairmont Mesa from 11am–2pm. Vegan food will be available. We will also be celebrating Ezra’s 75th birthday (no presents). This year the Center will be paying for each ZCSD member attending and one guest per member, as a thank you to Zen Center members. Others are welcome for a $20 donation. There will be a sign-up sheet in the kitchen or email us so we know how much food needs to be prepared. Please sign up in advance if you can, so we can get a rough count. However, you are still welcome 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.

Membership Dues
Zen Center members may pay dues with PayPal. You may pay dues monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Payments can also be scheduled for automatic payment from a checking account or credit card.  There is a small transaction fee for the service which has been added to the payment.  We encourage members to pay their dues with PayPal to help us streamline accounting procedures at ZCSD.
