Evening Schedule

Our Winter practice theme will be WHAT IS YOUR ORIGINAL FACE?

Huineng, the sixth Ancestor of Chinese Zen, asked in the Platform Sutra, “When you are not thinking of anything good and anything bad, at that moment, what is your original face?” 


Zen Master Dōgen in first fascicle, Fukanzazengi, commented: “Cease practice based on intellectual understanding, pursuing words and following after speech. Learn the backward step that turns your light inward to illuminate within. Body and mind of themselves will drop away and your original face will be manifest.” 


We will continue to meet both live (in the Multifaith Chapel in Campion) and via Zoom. If you would like to join us on Zoom and are not already on the listserv, please send us a message and you will receive the secure Zoom invitation.

7:10 pm: optional Zen training with Daichi for those new to Zen
