One-day Zen Sitting: Fostering the Mirror Awareness

October 7 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

In our Soto Zen-style one-day sittings we engage with alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, and silent bag lunch (please bring your own). If this is your first one-day sitting, please speak with Practice Leader Jim Hare (916-456-7752) prior to signing up.

Sitting all day brings forth the great mirror awareness in us. It interrupts our common habit of comparing ourselves to others and fosters trust in ourselves, as we are. The receptive awareness of zazen is extolled and celebrated in Zen poetry and literature. As the Song of the Jewel Mirror Samadhi says, “it acts as a guide for beings; its use removes all pains.”

Please join us for a day of sitting and singing the silent song of the precious mirror awareness.    REGISTER
