Zen has been called “the study of the self,” but what does that mean, and what does that look like in everyday life?

Join the sangha of Ekan Zen Study Center for an online class in Meeting the Self Here, There and Everywhere. To register, email konin@ekanzenstudycenter.org

Class materials including Dharma talks, blog posts, and reflection practices will be available on the Registered Students web page. In addition, live online discussions will take place for 1 hour and 15 minutes on: 

Friday, November 10, 2017 @ 3:00 pm PST
Friday, November 17, 2017 @ 3:00 pm PST

(no class Thanksgiving weekend)

Friday, December 01, 2017 @ 3:00 pm PST
Friday, December 08, 2017 @ 3:00 pm PST

In this online class, lead by Guiding Teacher Konin Cardenas, you will have the opportunity to explore ancient and modern teachings that support personal discovery, a kind of discovery that goes beyond your usual ways of thinking and feeling about yourself.  You will hear about great role models from the past and present, and you will engage, together with your peers, in activities that open up your world to new understanding and self-expression informed by the wisdom teachings of Zen. 

The primary text for this class is by contemporary teacher Shunryu Suzuki Roshi. As one of the first wave of Japanese Zen teachers to come to the US in the 1960s, Suzuki Roshi was a pioneer. His book, “Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind” is a classic that has inspired Western Buddhists for over 45 years. We will study excerpts from this text, which is widely available, both in hard copy and electronically.

In addition, you will be provided with excerpts of teachings by some of the most revered ancient Zen Masters, such as Dongshan Liangjie and Eihei Dogen. These teachings have survived for centuries because they continue to be relevant to some of the deepest questions posed by humanity today.

This class is offered by donation, and participants can join by video conference or phone call.
