Saturday, September 8, 10 am—12:30 pm, suggested donation £25

Led by Ryushin Paul Haller
Being present and experiencing what’s happening is the essence of Zen practice and requires no special abilities. Our life blossoms as we learn to meet what’s being experienced in each moment. Sustaining the intention to be present is the Heart of the Zen Way. In this workshop we will discuss and engage the traditional Zen practices that promote presence — attention, integrity and the openness of Beginner’s Mind.
