March 1, 2020 –
BZC will offer two women’s sesshins in 2020. The first will be on March 1, led by Reigetsu Susan Moon. Susan has been practicing in the Soto tradition since 1976, at BZC, SFZC, and Everyday Zen Center. She is the co-editor, along with Zenshin Florence Caplow, of The Hidden Lamp: Stories from Twenty-Five Centuries of Awakened Women. She is also the author of The Life and Letters of Tofu Roshi and This Is Getting Old: Zen Thoughts on Aging with Humor and Dignity. She received Lay Entrustment from Zoketsu Norman Fischer.
This sesshin is a half-day devoted to exploring women’s experiences and understanding of the Dharma, and the integration of Zen practice in the daily life of women. It will be from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will include 30-minute sitting periods; walking meditation; lecture, with discussion; and lunch. An orientation to zazen will be offered. For more information, please contact Karen Sundheim (firstname.lastname@example.org). The second women’s sesshin will be October 18, 2020.
