The Forms of Practice

The Forms of Practice 

With Michael Newhall

According to Dogen, just to maintain the posture of zazen is in itself enlightenment.  The Zen forms are tools to guide us to our center and to illuminate and sustain our practice.  The afternoon workshop is designed to provide a working knowledge of the basic forms of Zen: meditation, navigating the Zendo and moving through services and ceremonies.  Whether you are new to practice or have the Heart Sutra committed to memory, refining your connection with the movement of Zen is a pivotal opportunity to deepen your connection with mystery of stillness.
