with Abiding Abbot Rinso Ed Sattizahn
Eight Tuesdays: October 7 - November 25, 2014
7:30 - 9 pm
When we do not expect anything, we can be ourselves. That is our way, to live fully in each moment of time.
—Shunryu Suzuki Roshi
In this class series, we will study selections from Zen Mind Beginner’s Mind
, Not Always So
, Crooked Cucumber
and unpublished lectures of Suzuki Roshi that exemplify his teaching. Suzuki Roshi's lectures are written in his own inimitable, allusive and paradoxical style. We will engage one another in a rich discussion of his wholehearted expression of his rich life.
