Experience: Thinking, Writing, Language and Religion (workshop with Norman Fischer), CC 4/1

With Zoketsu Norman Fischer
in the City Center Buddha Hall

   Friday, April 1, 2016, 10 am – 4 pm

Based on Norman’s new collection of essays by the same title, this workshop will focus on questions like: What is the core of spiritual practice? What is language, and how does it help or hinder our practice? What is religious experience, ­ or any experience ­ after all?

Norman will share his insights from the book and offer guided meditations and writing exercises to help us bring these questions home. There will be plenty of time for dialogue. Probably also some discussion of two more of his recent books will enter into the spirit of the day: Magnolias All At Once (poetry) and What Is Zen? Plain Talk for a Beginner’s Mind.

Fees: $80; $72 current SFZC members; $64 limited income.
