« back to classes page
This class will be an introduction to the basics of zen practice and meditation. We will cover the history of zen from its origins in China up to its present state in the modern world. We will also learn traditional zen meditation methods plus simple mindfulness techniques that promote the living of a more fulfilled, focused and stress-free life. Students will be introduced to forms of 'engaged Buddhism,' chanting practice and the role of women in current zen organizations. Three evening classes will be help at SRJC and one Saturday class at the Sonoma Mountain Zen Center. The Saturday class will include a formal zen lecture followed by a delicious vegetarian lunch.
