Zen in the Age of Anxiety: A Talk by Tim Burkett

Tim Zentetsu Burkett, guiding teacher of Minnesota Zen Meditation Center, will offer a dharma talk and reading from his latest book, Zen in the Age of Anxiety: Wisdom for Navigating Our Modern World (Shambhala Publications), on Friday afternoon, September 14, from 5:45 to 6:30 p.m. at Berkeley Zen Center.

Tim began practicing with Suzuki Roshi in 1964, and in the early 1970s was a student of Katagiri Roshi in Minneapolis. Written in the style of an owner’s manual for human beings, this new book focuses on areas of pain and anxiety as they tend to manifest in our lives: feelings of unworthiness and issues around sex, money, failure, and death. Tim’s extensive background in Zen and his experience as a psychotherapist bring wisdom to our fears and anxieties, turning them into building blocks of a fulfilling life.
Please join us for this unique opportunity. Books will be available for purchase following the talk.
