Dharma Chat – Monkey Mind with Hoshi Eisho

7:00 pmto8:00 pm

Many of us come into Zen practice with the idea that a still mind is the goal … and that we’re somehow failing as meditators if thoughts keep arising during zazen. In this discussion we’ll look at our relationship to the thinking mind and consider skillful ways to work with thoughts without making them a problem.

Ox Herding Pictures
 
 

 

 

From ancient time, all traditions have set up ‘paths’ of spiritual development.  The Zen Ox-Herding Pictures show the passage from initiation – the search for self - to a maturation of insight and return to ordinary life.

What is it to awaken in a postmodern scientific era?  What are the contours of practice in a time of unprecedented technological, economic, and ecological change?

This ten month class will explore what it means to wake up in a world that more than ever requires our awakening.  We will find out what stories we need to awaken from in order to discover what new stories we may create.

The texts we’ll use are:  David Loy’s The World is Made of Stories (required), the Ten Ox Herding Pictures (supplied) and short, thoughtful supplementary readings from contemporary writers (also supplied).

 

The monthly classes will include lecture, discussion, exercises and journal writing.

 

Fee $600.  Class size is limited.

 

Payment in full is due at time of registration.   Contact signup@villagezendo.org
