Ingen Breen visit March 3rd and 4th

Some great news: our dharma friend Ingen Breen is coming to Belfast for March 3rd and 4th, 2018, and everyone is invited to Black Mountain Zen Centre to sit with him.

On Saturday, March 3rd, Ingen will lead a daylong sitting called “Things As It Is”, in which he will explore that infinitely intriguing phrase, a favourite of Suzuki Roshi. The day will begin at 9 am and end at 5 pm, and the suggested donation is 20 pounds to help cover Ingen’s travel expenses (nobody will be turned away for lack of funds!). Wear loose, comfortable clothes, and bring vegetarian lunch to share.

On Sunday morning, March 4th, which will begin at the usual time of 10 am, Ingen will give the dharma talk at 11 am, so do come along and enjoy his expression of the dharma on either or both of these days.
