Shambhala Publications has just released When You Greet Me I Bow: Notes and Reflections from a Life in Zen, a collection of thirty years of Norman’s Buddhist essays, with contemporary notes and reflections. In this daylong retreat we will sit, and discuss some of the themes contained in the book — what is a Zen teacher? politics and Zen? racism and Zen? tradition and ritual? emptiness? all in all a chance to think about what we are up to as aspiring Buddhist practitioners in the modern world, with a teacher who has seen and considered it for a long time.
