The Hokyoji Zen Practice Community has raised $440,000 on a goal of $550,000 to build a Practitioner's Hall and dormitory space. This campaign’s $10,000 goal will provide funding for the kitchen cabinets and countertops.
Forty years ago, Dainin Katagiri Roshi came to southeastern Minnesota to build a place to promote the quiet community life in unity. This capital campaign will build on his vision. Hokyoji has offered practice opportunities in a tranquil setting that support, nourish and enrich the lives of all people. All are welcome at Hokyoji and with the new buildings we will be able to accommodate all people who seek peace and refuge. We see the opportunity to offer programs in mindful communications, yoga, environmental awareness, poetry, movement and much more.
The current design plans will create a Practitioner's Hall with a kitchen, diningroom/program space, offices, and bathrooms. The dormitory will have sleeping rooms, bathrooms and showers.
The campaign's deep purpose is to preserve the future of Hokoyji for future generations as an oasis of joyful quiet and calm, dedicated to personal renewal and refreshment. Every person who discovers renewal at Hokyoji returns to the larger world with a greater ability to cultivate peaceful engagement with his or her own life and the lives of others. There is only one world. Caring for it where we are is caring for it everywhere.
