Jikoji Retreat Center, 12100 Skyline Blvd, Los Gatos, CA 95033, phone: (408) 741-9562
On Sundays everyone is welcome at any time. Please come, and invite your family and friends to join us!
Most guests participate in the Practice Schedule and lunch listed below.
However, anyone is welcome to relax in Jikoji's community building, enjoy our grounds, or
hike the many Open Space Trails in the area.
A $10 donation is suggested.
A white board outside the entrance to the community building
lists each Sunday's schedule and locations. Note that Jikoji sometimes hosts private retreats or rents facilities to other groups,
so some facilities may be closed to the public. On these occasions the regular Sunday
program is usually held in the small zendo,
with lunch usually at our outdoor dining area or in the Residents kitchen.
