EVERY DAY ZEN
The purpose of Every Day Zen is to allow for extended practice amidst the activities of our life every day.
This year’s Every Day Zen, has the theme ‘When cold and heat visit us, how should we avoid them?’: practice in a time of climate change. A student’s question to Dongshan goes to the heart of how we deal with the circumstances of our life. How do we do that?
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.
