This eight week class covers everything you need to develop a meditation practice in your life and also points to something even more fundamental - a way to experience and live in freedom and joy, no matter what the circumstances of your life. This is the path of Zen, and this class is a first step to discovering this for yourself.
Wednesday evenings, Sept 18 to Oct 30
