Zazenkai, June 8: Even Prior to Heaven and Earth
Please join us on Sunday June 8 at Dharma Gate for a one-day zenkai with Madelon from 9am to 3pm.
There will be an informal lunch, with soup, as well as brad & cheese for sandwiches, provided; please bring other sandwich fixings or other food to share. We will consider hints given in Daio Kokushi’s verse On Zen, settling in to the deep attraction that practice holds even in the presence of the contradictions of daily experience.
The schedule will be as follows:
9:00 Opening, Five Remembrances, Zazen
9:35 Pointers: selected lines of On Zen, Zazen
10:30 Recitation: Daio Kokushi’s On Zen, Dharma talk, Comments and discussion, Kinhin
12:30 Informal lunch (Soup, bread & cheese provided. Please bring sandwich fixings or other food to share.)
2:00 Zazen, Interviews
2:50 Closing, Great Vows
We’re looking forward to sitting with you.
