Event Details


Everyday Zen Dialog



Going about our daily lives, we may feel caught up in a whir of activities, doing more, collecting material things, or trying to achieve ideals of success.  Yet so much effort doesn’t seem to bring us closer to a sense of peace or satisfaction.

In coming together, we will examine the cultural and personal pressures behind all this reaching for more, which often adds to our restlessness and deepens feelings of separation.  We will explore new ways to just be in our lives.  Moment by moment, can we begin to taste a nectar that nourishes us with ungraspable meaning?

This day-long session will be led by experienced teachers in the Zen tradition, skilled in helping individuals and groups explore inmost concerns.  Activities will include meditation, guided writing exercises, and open-hearted 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
