An Appropriate Response: What Is a Buddhist Response to Adversity? CC 10/25

with Keiryu Liên Shutt
in the Conference Center at 308 Page Street

Saturday, October 25, 2014
9 am - 4:30 pm

Zen master Yunmen was once asked, “What is the teaching of the Buddha’s entire lifetime?” Yunmen answered, “An appropriate response.”

Events of our lives and the world we live in can challenge us. Sometimes as Buddhist practitioners we are challenged by others and/or ourselves, with questions such as: What is the right thing to be doing now? When is it time to sit and reflect, and when it is time to get up and act?

Buddhist teachings can be helpful at these times, pointing towards ways to work with both internal and external circumstances. Join me in a daylong workshop exploring history, reflections and practices from different Buddhist traditions which help us build awareness, capacity and wisdom for what may be appropriate responses for ourselves individually, our communities and our world.

Meditation/zazen, dharma talks, and small group discussions will be used. Open to all.
