Fall Teen Practice – Oct 2-Dec 11

Teen Group Practice
with Keika Karin San Juan, Jake Nagasawa, and guiding teacher Sosan Flynn
October 2, 16 & 30, November 13 & 27, 11 am – 12:30 pm; and December 11, 9-10:30 am (community rohatsu ceremony)

The Teen Group (grades 7-12) is a combination of basic Buddhist teachings, fun activities, and social time. We practice inclusivity, self-awareness, and basic values such as honesty, patience, and compassion, as they relate to teen life. Although we will practice some Zen forms, you need not consider yourself a Buddhist to attend.


  • Patron Level: $500 (covers Youth & Family Leader salary, Clouds admin/staffing, and makes it possible for more families to participate who cannot afford the full amount) 
  • Value Level: $150 (covers Youth & Family Leader salary, and Clouds admin/staffing)
  • Basic Level: $75 (covers Clouds admin/staffing)
  • Your Level: Choose your price according to your means. No one is turned away due to inability to pay.

The total cost of Youth & Family Practice for the year is about $39,000. Almost half of this is the compensation for our part time paid staff and the other half is the portion of the administrative expenses, mortgage and depreciation associated with this program (about 10% of the total). Because we believe that serving youth and families is so important, Clouds in Water has made the commitment to provide this service. Let’s do this together! Please consider carefully what you will give as you register your child for this program. We are also reaching out to non-parents to help with donations.

Online registration ends 9/29/2022
