    Are the activities on New Years Eve open to anyone? I just started practicing Buddhism and have never been to the Zen center so I am not familiar with what has been described but may a newbie attend?

      Yes, the New Year’s Eve events are open to all. If you have no experience in meditation, you can sit as well as you are able, and there are chairs available. It’s a great way to experience New Year’s Eve, so I hope you will attend.
