For the Love of Life: An Art Practice Series (over Zoom)

with Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei

July 3 - August 28, 2020


Buddhadharma teaches that our life can be experienced as a miraculous display of awakened nature in which all phenomenon spring from the same source, the ordinary magic of mind. In this new Zoom series, we will practice the wonder of how to meet the many aspects of ourselves, our materials, and objects with loving attention, opening the senses every moment as a changing, shifting display.

Zazen practice will be the basic ground as we attune to how the visible and invisible work together to produce the miraculous, beautiful shapes, sounds, movements and colors that are born out of stillness, silence and spaciousness all energetically alive. 


 Three Fridays a Month: July 3, 17 & 31st: 10:30am-12:00pm.  August 7, 14 & 28th: 10:30am-12:00pm.

Participate in the series or come for one or more session. Drop-ins welcome; not necessary to be part of all sessions.

Your registration confirmation will include a link to the Zoom session.

Donations are appreciated to help support our efforts during this time.
