On-site ZCNYC: Seeing the Moon—Writing and the Art of Change

with Katherine Jifu Jamieson

October 2, 2021

Barn’s burnt down—
I can see the moon
  — Masahide
Over the past few years we’ve experienced major transformation in the ways we live due to the pandemic, technology, climate instability and politics. How do we find solid ground when so much around is shifting day-to-day? What remains when the things or ideas we thought we could count on have fallen away?
In this writing workshop we’ll be exploring the theme of change and the wide range of responses it can evoke: grief, regret, renewal, and possibility. We’ll have time to write together in various forms and share our work as a way to make sense of the shifts we’re living through in these unique times.
To help during this transition time, NO WALK-INS ALLOWED, and PRE-REGISTRATION ONLY. You must be fully vaccinated to participate in this event.Thank you!
**(Consider joining the half day-sit 9-noon this same morning. This would be a wonderful way to combine both retreats with a lunch foray in between). 

We strive to keep our retreat prices low and offer these programs by donation. Program price for this retreat is $30, please pay what you can. It’s important that the dharma is available to everyone. Thank you for your continued support.
