Join us for a day of practice together for all those practicing as Zen Peacemakers in Colorado. You do not have to belong formally to ZPI to participate.
Our day of practice will include meditation (sitting and walking), a work period (so bring work clothes, hat and sunscreen), a talk on the Three Tenets by Shishin Wick Roshi, senior teacher in the White Plum Asanga, and Council training with practice led by Grant Fuku Couch Sensei, who has worked for years with ZPI at the international and national levels.
Please register via RSVP Yes to this Meetup event.
Contact [masked] or [masked] for any individual questions.
Because space limits us to 30 participants, plan to stay the day, with arrival 8 to 8:30 until at least 3:30 pm. Those who can may continue to sit together until 5:15.
If you can only do a half day, contact me (Karin) separately for a wait list, and we will add you if there is room.
While Willow Farm has cushions, you may wish to bring your own.
The suggested dana is $20 (check or cash) which will be donated to the Willow Farm Guest House Project, a hospice home in development by our Willow Farm hosts.
If you would like a delicious vegetarian lunch for an additional $8, please let us know. You may also bring your lunch. Tea and water provided to all.
