Event Details

Sundays, 8 - 9:15 am
June 17 - July 22
with Furyu Schroeder

The word Zen comes from a long line of mispronunciations. In India the word was "dhyana", the Chinese pronounced it "channa" and called this tradition "Chan"; the Japanese heard "Chan" and called it "Zen". Regardless of how it's pronounced, sincere students of Buddha's teaching for over 2,000 years have taken up the Zen tradition of meditation, mindfulness and ethical conduct to benefit themselves and the world around them. In this class we will study together the line of teachers and teachings, starting with Shakyamuni Buddha, and ending with the arrival of Shunryu Suzuki as the founder of the San Francisco Zen Center.
