In this series of events, we will be discussing Appreciate Your Life: The Essence of Zen Practice, by White Plum Asanga founder, Taizan Maezumi, Roshi. In this book, Maezumi Roshi provides short, accessible explorations of topics such as zazen, koans, and shikantaza, as well as the intimate relationship between our practice and daily lives. The book will surely speak to the questions and curiosities of seasoned practitioners and beginners alike.
We will meet semi-monthly via Zoom video conferencing for approximately one-hour, beginning at 9:30 AM, on February 28. Subsequent meetings will take place on March 14, March 28, and April 11. Our discussion moderator, postulant priest Kevin Muzo Holohan, will choose a selection of readings and provide questions for consideration prior to each meeting.
To participate, please obtain a copy of the book and complete the book discussion registration form. There is no cost for this series of events, (but free-will donations are sincerely appreciated). If purchasing the book represents a financial hardship, a copy will be provided for you.
Once registered, you will receive a Zoom link to join the meetings, the selection of chapters for the first week, and questions for consideration.
