Practice Circle led by Rev. So’on Jim Hare (Speaker in person)
April 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This evening’s practice circle will be led by the head of practice, Tanto Rev. So-On Jim Hare.
The Three Treasures are the foundation of the Practice Circle: (1) the Oneness of Buddha, (2) the Diversity of Dharma, (3) the Harmony of Sangha. The circle itself is a container for being in the present, manifesting just as we are in the truth of the moment.
Our Practice Circle Guidelines are adapted from the Zen Center of Los Angeles:
When speaking, we practice speaking from integrity and speak the truth as we know it. We stay focused on our own experience as opposed to taking about others or talking abstractly.
In listening, we try not to interrupt, even with our thoughts. We practice receiving whatever is being offered by another without attachments or judgements.
In silence, we allow all things to arise and pass away, accepting and honoring different expressions and perspectives. We sit with our discomfort.
