SUNDAY, Dec. 4th, 9:30am - 12pm, Finding Out for Ourselves - with David Weinstein, Roshi
'Are Dolphins really as smart as people say they are?'
'People' say all kinds of things. 'They' say this and that about this, that and them and often what 'they say' isn't based on reality, but rather, on what 'other people', other 'theys' say.
The practice of meditation is about not listening to what 'people say', or even what 'we' say, as we gossip to ourselves about ourselves and others. It is about finding out for ourselves. Not through comparison of brain size, or performance of certain tasks, but through becoming intimate, with ourselves and the world around us.
Join us every Sunday morning at 9:30 AM for Meditation followed by tea, a talk on Zen Koans and conversation.
You do not need any previous experience or introduction to participate. Everyone is welcome.
