The self and things of the world are just as they are.
The gate of emancipation is open ~ Dogen Zenji
The precepts are an expression of our very wholeness. As such, they serve as guidelines for living a joyous life. For ten months we will study them as tools to turn our light inwards, develop compassion for ourselves and deepen our harmony with others. With a practice grounded in zazen, we will use the precepts to observe ourselves in action, inquire into our reactive patterns, and uncover our conditioned beliefs about ourselves, in contrast to what the precepts show to be true. Classes will be interactive and experiential in nature, structured around readings, writing, discussion, dyadic and group work.
Classes, led by Roshi Enkyo and Joshin Sensei, will be held at the Zendo on the following Sunday afternoons, from 1:30 to 4:30.
Tuition: $600, Class size is limited. Payment is due at time of registration, Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
