Now What? How to Be (and Stay) a Beginner (Class), CC 8/5 - 9/9

with Zachary Smith
City Center

Six Tuesdays: August 5 - September 9, 2014
7:30 - 9 pm

Suzuki Roshi famously claimed that the difficult part of Zen practice was not sitting, or even enlightenment. Instead, he suggests that it is the way we entangle and hinder ourselves with ideas and expectations. We’ll be exploring the ongoing path of practice, using as guides selections from Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, as well as the early writings of Eihei Dogen. We'll learn how to work with the seemingly paradoxical dynamics that underlie practice and, indeed, all human activity—at least all human activity that we care about.
