SOTO ZEN PRACTICE WITH SILVER SPRING ZENDO/ONE HEART SANGHA

Dogen Zenji

Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi, Roshi

Bernie Glassman, Roshi

The Mindfulness Practice Group and Silver Spring Zendo/One Heart Sangha will offer a non-residential Spring AT-ONE-MENT SESSHIN at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis on April 13-15, 2017.

“How do we atone? By being at-one. By seeing that at every moment ... a part of me is wantonly destroying while another part is being destroyed, a part of me goes hungry while another eats to excess. We are all interconnected. We are all one. If we get stuck in anger, in blame, and in guilt, then we are paralyzed, we can’t act. When we can get beyond those things, when we can forgive, then the right action arises by itself, and we begin to take care of each other.”
(from “ Forgiveness”, a dharma talk by Bernie Glassman, Roshi)

Please join us as you can, for as much or little of the sesshin as your schedule allows in this busy week before Easter, and don't be kept away by unfamiliar forms and terms. Things will be explained as we go along. There is not a charge for this sesshin but there will be a dana bowl for SSZ/UUCA. Please register here.
