Details

I will be giving an introduction to the Zen practice of Shikantaza. This is a traditional style of meditation that is practiced sitting up with the eyes open. It is geared toward prioritizing our awareness over out thought patterns. We will meditate until 7:55pm and then will break to begin studying Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. My teacher studied under Trungpa Rinpoche for 15 years before meeting his Zen Master Kobun Chino Roshi. I look forward to practicing with you all soon! Don't let the number of people signed up scare you off. Most of our members don't sign up but we regularly have 12-15 participants.
