Investigating Zen Practice

Saturday, May 05, 2018 - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

The teachings of zen are subtle and often implicit - pointing us into our own direct experience. This daylong workshop is an opportunity to dispel some of the mystery surrounding zen practice. Come, enjoy this guided tour through the various aspects of Zen.

The day is informal and experiential in its approach allowing you to step into the forms, embody the practices and ask questions. There will be periods of silence woven throughout the day.

We will be exploring the following ten aspects of Zen Practice.

Meditation, Mindfulness practice, Chanting, Mindful eating, Work practice, Stillness, Walking meditation, Koans, Tradition and ritual, Dharma teachings

This is an introductory course for those looking to deepen their understanding of the Zen practices and forms. It is also an opportunity to get to know this community.

Lunch (vegetarian/vegan) is included.
