Zen and the Art of Falling in Love by Brenda Shoshanna
Education: Participants must read all the required books and are expected to do all the homework assignments. Most of the homework will be experiential rather than written exercises. Homework is sent via email and the first assignment is due on the first class.
Practice: Buddhism should not be approached just on an intellectual basis but must be applied in daily life, which, through committed and diligent practice, will transform the mind and heart. To get most out of the course, participants should try to practice deep hearing, doing the exercises in the book, practice voice, sitting or walking meditation, and attend sangha gatherings to hear the dharma on a regular basis.
