Refining Strong Emotions

When: Fridays 7:00-8:30pm
Where: Campbell
Cost: Donation
Why: To learn the heart of skillfulness

Passion, our energetic connection to this world and this life, is the source of our most inspired creativity and our noblest actions.  From this wellspring flows the energy of our life and in our deepest clearest moments, we can access our finest moments.  But as we see in the flow of water, our passion, when constricted, often becomes rough and turbulent, with waves and rapids which can overwhelm us in our journey.  Within our body this can take the form of  Anxiety, Rage, Depression, and Fear.  In this six week workshop, we will roll up our sleeves and take a Zen approach toward working directly with strong emotion, getting past the stories and developing a set of practical skills to create a sense of flow as the water of life moves through us.

Midday Meditation

When: Fridays 12:00-1:30pm
Where: Palo Alto
Cost: Donation
Why: To build
community

he purpose of this group is meditation, appropriate for those who have been sitting for years and those who have never meditated. The form is Zen, meaning that we will take off our shoes and line them up neatly, bow as we enter, join the slow walking line, and when the bell rings, bow to our cushions, and sit (cushion or chair provided). If this appeals to you, and you can take an hour in the middle of the day, this group is for you. After 10 minutes walking meditation and 30 minutes sitting, there will be 20 minutes of discussion. It’s expected this part of the hour will evolve along with the group. Whoever wants to, can join us across the street at Prolific Oven for more talking.

Zazenkai w/ Doug Jacobson

Zazenkai w/ Doug Jacobson

Just like training the body, a central element in the training of our minds is the need to vary the intensity of our zen practice.  This Saturday zazenkai is an exploration into intensive silent practice, and a deepening of our meditation.  The day will begin with with a brief introduction to zen and zazen, and then we will spend the rest of the day in the stream of contemplative practice.  In these moments, deep insights and realization of the meaning of the words of the Buddha move through us as we come intimately familiar with the movement of sunlight through the zendo.
