October 9 Sesshin
Aspects of Practice 2022
The BZC Senior Students invite you to join us for Aspects of Practice 2022, which begins with a one-day sesshin on September 10 and closes with a one-day sesshin on Sunday October 9. This includes a Thursday night class series, and Saturday and Monday morning talks.
The Aspects of Practice period is a time to deepen our own personal practice and an opportunity to expand and enrich our Sangha life together. The theme of study, reflection and community strengthening is the teaching of the Buddha’s Eightfold Path. We will explore in depth these eight guidances as taught by the Buddha 2500 years ago: Right View, Right Thinking, Right Mindfulness, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, and Right Concentration. The Eightfold Path is part of the Four Noble Truths, the Buddha’s earliest teaching.
