MAY 2021

The purpose of Every Day Zen is to allow for extended practice amidst the activities of our life every day.

The annual Zen Intensives, from which Every Day Zen has evolved, provide a different perspective on how we can carry our practice amidst our busy lives. Every Day Zen has a more variable format than regular sittings or sesshin, allowing us to explore our practice with others in the safety of a committed and supportive group. For this reason we ask that participants at this unique event attend full-time.

Every Day Zen, in 2021, will be online with Mari Rhydwen Roshi.










Theme:                                     Lay Bodhisattvas









From koan case 89 in the Blue Cliff Record: ‘How does the Bodhisattva Guanyin use those many hands and eyes?’ .

Every Day Zen consists of 10 days when we can integrate our practice more intensively into our everyday lives by joining together regularly on Zoom to practice more zazen and dokusan and together explore the way of the lay Bodhisattva.

If you are interested in attending, and did not attend the February Zazenkai, read the talk given by Mari that day titled 'Can we practice all the time?'

The schedule comprises two weekends, and three weekday evenings (two Fridays and a Tuesday).
