Nuts & Bolts of Zen Practice: Taking The Path

with Ron Hogen Green, Sensei

June 18, 2021

Sitting quietly in the sun: the ancient way
wind blowing through my bodyis my body.
Excluding others, the land itself, cries for us
in our deafness how can we hear?
I sing my songs to help.
I’ll never tire of this life.

This is the first in a monthly series of seminars with lay dharma teacher Hogen Sensei.  The evening seminar will explore the intimate fundamentals of practice, with ample time for questions and discussion. Topics include:

  • There is a path—The Tao
  • Making it personal—It is my business
  • Zazen as home base—Breath and the mind of concentration
  • Living a life that holds all of me
  • Accepting myself—You can’t do this wrong
  • Self and selflessness

Friday, June 18th, 6:30-8pm

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