Everyday Zen Dialog
JOY & FREEDOM IN DIFFICULTY
When fiery suffering erupts from difficulties and challenges in our lives, we may into learned patterns of tolerating or coping until we get through it. But there is so much more possibility open to us.
In coming together, we will explore our capacity to joy and freedom in the fire of confusion, sadness, even despair. Beyond positive thinking, this capacity is more real and grounded than new age cliches. With mutual support, we can find this place and power within ourselves
This day-long session will be led by experienced teachers in the Zen tradition, skilled in helping individuals explore inmost concerns and long term development. During our day together, we will engage in meditation, with music, poetry, and open-discussion.
What to bring: Please remember to bring a bag lunch and cash or check for traditional Dana (donation) for the teachers. There are chairs, zafus, and zabutons on-site. Wear comfortable clothes. This day will include meditation, discussion, and creative writing. Bring something to write on and with.
