The Five Expressions

Practice Circle with Joshin Sensei

Learn about your unique way of expressing the dharma by getting to know the qualities and energetic manifestations of the 5 buddha families: vajra, ratna, padma, karma and buddha. Over four Sundays, we will look at the enlightened and neurotic expressions of these dynamic energies as shown in what we care about, how we act and how we relate to others.

Our Sunday Program starts at 9:30am.
The practice circles will be at 11:00 am following two periods of zazen.
