with Shundo David Haye
Four Thursdays: October 8 - 29, 2015
7:30 - 9 pm
How does a book written for the head cook at a 13th century Japanese monastery have relevance to our lives today? Examining this classic text by Eihei Dogen, and some of the commentaries written on it, we will have a chance to see how the Zen approach to work practice can inform our attitudes toward the people we meet and the situations we find ourselves in.
