“In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s mind there are few.”
If you would like to become more intimate with practice at Zen Center, here are some suggestions for next steps. Some of these can be applied elsewhere or from home.
(Note: We offer specific suggestions for City Center and Green Gulch because they are the most available of our centers to the public. Tassajara during the spring and summer is a wonderful retreat location, and offers a variety of practice opportunities, including work practice, guest practice and retreats. During the fall and winter, it is reserved for intense monastic practice periods. If you’re not in the San Francisco/Marin area, you may be able to find a sitting group near you.)
