Awake Body – Awake Mind: Embodying the Buddha Way (class), CC 10/12 – 11/23
With Kiku Christina Lehnherr
In the Dining Room
For this karmic life we have been given a body, a wonderful organism of complete, all-inclusive responsiveness, functioning continuously. It is the host and vehicle for the Being we are to express itself, as well as the storehouse of all our experiences. It shares the innate capacity of nature to live in harmony with difference and equality. In this existence enlightenment arises through and within the body, there is no enlightenment available to us apart from it. In this class we will be using texts and practices from Zen and other traditions in support of the endeavor to inhabit our own bodies more fully, to engage their capacity for awakening and to embody our unique and miraculous lives more completely. The six classes will be complemented and enhanced with two (optional) One-Day Sittings on October 5 and November 2.
Fees: $120; $108 current SFZC members; $72 limited income. Some partial scholarships available.
