with Jody Hojin Kimmel, Sensei
July 2, 2022
A three-hour practice of connecting with the still point, making space in which to find the heart-mind and body, and a place to take refuge. Let us sit deep into our well and show up from a place of love and courage—the two things that throughout history have been shown are necessary in order to help humanity not only survive but thrive.
These short zazen intensives are popular with those new to Zen practice or meditation as well as more experienced students. The morning offers a time of silence and stillness and provides an excellent way to explore and deepen one’s zazen.
