One-Day Zazenkai - Establishing a Real Practice
March 14, 2020 9:00am - 4:00pm
Are you new to meditation or Zen Buddhist practice? Have you read books about Zen, or been doing meditation on your own? Do you think you’d like to study with a teacher? Designed for those new to Zen or formal Zen training as well as the more seasoned student of Zen and meditation, this seven-hour Zazenkai allows you to immerse yourself in Zen practice and experience the Monastery’s Formal Zen Training Program.
During the day, you’ll receive instruction in Zazen (seated meditation) and have a chance to experience and ask questions about liturgy, work as sacred activity, mindfulness practice, the moral teachings and compassion, and community. You’ll learn how to establish a consistent home practice and receive guidance on bringing it into your work, family, and relationships. And you’ll have the opportunity to meet and speak with The Monks of Pine Wind to explore the importance of the teacher-student relationship for the spiritual path.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED (non-members) $35. Includes Lunch
NO FEE TO BENEFACTOR MEMBERS AND STUDENTS IN FORMAL TRAINING
