One-Year Non-Residential Training Program
with Ryushin Paul Haller and other Zen teachers
This one-year, experiential training program is designed to help participants develop a sustainable daily meditation practice and mindfulness of body, mind and emotions during everyday activities and relationships. Some meditation experience would be helpful but it is not essential. We will engage the modalities of meditation, yoga, sensing, and mindfulness of activities, and explore practice themes in dyads, triads and small groups.
All of these methods will enable us to apply the principles of Zen Buddhist practice in our daily lives at home and in the marketplace.
There will be three parts to the course:
Establishing the fundamentals of practice
The emphasis will be cultivating meditation postures, body awareness, and the ability to bring awareness to our daily activities through a series of mindful exercises. These practices will be continued throughout all three trimesters.
Fees per Trimester: TBD. Participants sign up for each trimester separately. Scholarships are available; please contact the City Center Director via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration: A registration form will be available here or in the City Center front office when dates are set.
