Thich Nhat Hahn, an inspiring example of the gifts of practice, passed away last Friday. Here’s a link to a video that evokes the wonder and appreciation that he lived and shared with everyone: gratefulness.org May his teachings continue endlessly.
We’re delighted to share an invitation from Ryushin to join him for two classes in January. If you’d like to participate, please contact us here.
Dear Followers of the Way,
Happy New Year. May you and all beings be well and flourish.
I’m writing to you to describe a two-class offering at Black Mountain Zen Centre based on the teachings I gave at Tassajara during the Fall Practice Period that ended in December. These online classes will be Thursday, January 20 and Thursday, January 27, 2022, at 7 pm-8:20 pm Belfast time (add one hour for Slovenia and Germany, two hours for Greece).
We’ll send you a recording of the final summary of that nine-session Tassajara class in advance of our first online class together. During our class we’ll sit for twenty minutes, have a twenty-minute presentation and then a thirty-minute Q&A session. We’ll follow a similar format in the second class.
The classes will be offered on a donation basis but you’ll need to sign up to receive the original audio recording of the summary class. The Tassajara classes described the cultivation of practice from initial intentions, through the details of engaging awareness, to the application of non-dual engagement in everyday life.
