Zen training encourages our moment-by-moment actions of body and mind to flow from a consistent and sincere practice of zazen, or sitting meditation. How can we nourish our own true “dharma gate of repose and bliss,” a dynamic and living field informed but not limited by our teachers’ instructions? How can we cultivate an attitude of patient, gentle and infinitely curious investigation when it comes to how we carry ourselves? Exploring a variety of perspectives on posture through texts, visual tools and our own present-moment attunement, we will engage in a series of weekly body-mind inquiries, including at-home explorations, to invite sensitivity and awaken the mysterious and inconceivable experience of harmonious posture. This class is appropriate for seasoned practitioners and beginners alike.

Fees: $120; $108 current SFZC members; $72 limited income.
