Weekday evening sits resume on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:30 PM. At Magna House, as usual … please bring cushions and arrive a few minutes early to set up your seat. Chairs are available. Looking forward to practicing with you!
In spring 2019 we plan to have a monthly reading/writing/study group — online or in person. That way we can stay connected and practice together in the spring while Jo-Ei and Kenko are on the West Coast. Initial ideas might be similar to a monthly book study:
- read a chapter,
- write one page of reflections into a shared Google Doc,
- read some of the other participants’ writings before the meeting,
- then deepen the reflection together during the meeting (online or in person).
- Maybe a “Final Presentation” such as a poem, song, dance, painting, …
“Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind” was mentioned as one possible reading. Open to additional ideas. Let’s let this ferment a little while longer and come together to settle on a plan later this year. If you’re interested, let’s make sure we keep you in the loop, whether you’re in town or at a distance.
Study of the Oxherding Pictures will resume this fall on the third Sunday of the month: Oct 21, Nov 18, Dec 16 at 10 AM after the morning sit. All are welcome! Each study meeting is self-contained. No prior study participation necessary! Each picture is all fresh and new! You can download the two versions we’ve been using from our Study Page. Hope to see you there!
