Saturdays, January 26 - March 23
8:45 - 10 am
with Kiku Christina Lehnherr
and Dainin Marsha Angus
This class is based on the premise that the heart of Buddha is present everywhere. The development of intention makes it clear that cultivating presence, awareness, openness, mindfulness, kindness and connection are not bound by specific circumstances and environments. Through the lenses of body, emotions and mind, we will be using existing forms and developing new ones that support a sustained practice mind in the midst of our daily activities. Various texts from Zen and other Buddhist traditions will support us in this exploration.
Class fees; eight class meetings:
$120; $108 current SFZC members; $96 limited income.
