Our Kevin Rakusan has passed on

Our Kevin Rakusan passed away peacefully today at 4:38PM. His family was there, and there was a sense of completion to the grief and letting go that began in earnest on Monday evening when he lost consciousness.

Services are yet to be arranged, the plan is to schedule a memorial at the UU church in San Diego this Saturday March 19 and a service at Yokoji on Sunday March 20.

As soon as the details are clear, we'll send out a newsletter.

Love, Jishin

    Kevin was very special to Elaine and me from the first sesshin we attended 6 or 7 years ago to the most recent a few weeks ago, when he came in during an evening sitting walking slowly with his cane and friends in support. I’ll miss his humor and his dedication.
