Event description
Can we live our everyday lives with the mind of a Zen practitioner?

About this Event

Friday, February 21, 7 pm – 9 pm; Saturday, February 22, 9 am – 5 pm 

(Andre will also give the Sunday morning talk on February 23.)

In Zen we have many forms, many ways to express practice, to train our minds and our selves. Yet what do we do when we get up, eat breakfast, work, speak to our partners or friends or children? At those times, what mind will we express – and is that the same mind that does zazen? What is zazen mind? How do we cultivate this mind on and off the cushion?

What if all our ideas of zen, zazen and any other state of mind are just the thing that keeps us from really being this person? What if truly being this one is zen? Let's work together and try to explore this as wholeheartedly and honestly as we can.

  • Suggested donation £15, and if that's a challenge, please simply offer whatever you can afford. Wear loose comfortable clothing and bring vegetarian food to share on Saturday.
