By coming to a deep understanding of who we are, we become wisely and compassionately aware. The heart of Zen is directly experiencing this awareness. It grants us genuine insight, which informs our actions in the world.
In this series, students will be introduced to the fundamental practices and philosophy of Zen, including the essential “returning home and calmly resting” concentration-meditation practice.
This series is appropriate for all students, from complete beginners to advanced practitioners in all traditions.

Live music by Sineqube, the ambient music project of Kevin Holland and Jennifer Dutiel will set the soundscape for the evening. Together, they create original improvised music by orchestrating and layering vast timbral palettes of guitar and voice. Playing with the balance between the gentle, soothing bed of ambience and the uncharted frontiers of experimental music, they fuse elements of both to paint a live aural canvas that is exploratory, soothing and inviting.
