What We Can Trust: a One-day Zen Sitting
August 5, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every 2 months that begins at 9:00 am on day First of the month, repeating until December 2, 2017
Zazen surfaces our “mind of clover,” a pliant mind, a flexibile mind, a mind like clouds and water. This mind that is not “our” mind, but rather one that comes to us as a gift of practice. Informed by that mind we are inspired to be kind, to be flexible with others, to bend like bamboo in the wind. This is a mind we can really trust and it’s not ours and it’s not not ours. Together we will spend a day entrusting ourselves to the mind of clover, the awakening spirit of buddha. The sitting will be lead by Rev. So On Jim Hare, Practice Leader of Valley Streams Zen Sangha. Please bring a bag lunch. If this is your first time practicing with us or your first one-day sitting, please call Jim at 916-456-7752 so you can learn more about the day. $20 Register at Eventbrite.com.
