The Warm Ocean of Zen: An Exploration of City Center Forms, CC 9/21

with Keiryu Liên Shutt
Saturday, September 21, 2013
1 - 4 pm

“I will try to do it" is you are hesitating.
"I will do it" is like to jump into the ocean. 
    —Suzuki Roshi

Curious about the “doings” at City Center? Wonder what those forms and rituals are about? Come jump into the warm ocean of Soto Zen form practices with this workshop! This half-day explores the ways Soto Zen practice is carried out in a temple setting. These are called "forms." Contextual, practical, mindful and communal aspects of basic forms such as comportment, bowing, chanting, and walking meditation will be presented, discussed and bodily experienced.

Come try out the various forms you see around City Center, and bring your questions. You too can learn to “swim” in the warmth of our forms and rituals!

Open to all. Beginner’s mind/heart always welcomed.
