Foundations of Practice Class: Original Zen
Original Zen: What were the first Zen teachings?
with Bussho Lahn
1500 years ago in China, Buddhism took a new and dynamic form called Zen that still thrives to this day. Direct knowledge beyond words, spontaneity, harmony with nature and bare attention to just this moment are hallmarks of this tradition. We'll study some of the earliest and most influential Zen teachers, each with a unique and beautiful expression of every person's ability to awaken now.
Offered online and in person.
Wednesdays, May 30 – July 3, 7:15 – 8:45 pm (Last class is on a Tuesday due to the July 4 holiday.)
Please register five days in advance.

A Note About Donation-only Programming
Following the Buddhist tradition of dana, or giving, MZMC offers all of our programs on a donation basis. We offer a suggested donation amount to help people understand the average amount we hope to receive to continue to make these offerings. We encourage those with more capacity for giving to make a donation above the suggested amount to support those who need to give a smaller amount.
