Nuts & Bolts of Zen Practice (October)

with Ron Hogen Green, Sensei

October 13, 2023

In this series of talks, we will delve into the functions of Buddhist precepts as vital practice for leading a life of integrity and morality, and as a reflection of the essential values in Buddhist practice. On September 15th we will provide an overview of the Buddhist precepts for leading a life based on insight and compassion. This session and those that follow will explore intellectually, philosophically, and experientially how we can cultivate a living understanding of the Buddhist precepts.

There will be time for questions and discussion set aside. These seminars were designed with Practicing Members in mind, but they are perfect for all those looking to explore more deeply as well as those newer to practice.

Our online programs are offered by donation so that everyone can participate. We appreciate your support.
