Working together as peers and friends to discover the essence of Zen in everyday practice and Zen in everyday life.
This is the same essence that all paths seek to uncover. We appreciate the love that is at the core of all religions and spiritual development systems , even if the methods have at times been flawed.
This meetup group is an attempt to navigate the best middle ground between traditional paths suggested by true masters from the East, and the headstrong independence of the West. Our Western culture has brought us independent inquiry but now we can benefit from ancient practices to cultivate compassion, surrender and humility.
We will practice together, seeking to recover these qualities and more, using fresh approaches to traditional practices.
