We hope you will consider joining us for this Zen Meditation "workshop" at the Awakened Meditation Centre on Saturday, March 28, 2015, at 17:00 p.m. to midnight.
The intensive Zen meditation introduction and instruction workshop is a period of sustained practice designed to help us realize our true nature. These periods of focused practice are the heart of Zen training and suitable for both the beginner and seasoned practitioners. The workshop will give participants the opportunity to experience sitting meditation, Ko-An practice, Ko-An interview and Dharma talk about "no-self", "emptiness", "liberation" and "nirvana".
Through Zen meditation, a whole world of possibilities opens to the students for improving life and appreciating it because the mind attains calmness, clarity and awareness in silence. Through Zen meditation, the wisdom and compassion heart wakes up for the sake of the others for them to flourish with happiness, peace, and joy.
Nan-in received a university professor who came to inquire about Zen.
Nan-in served tea. He poured his visitor's cup full and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he could restrain himself no longer. "It is overfull. No more will go in!"
"Like this cup," Nan-in said, "you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?"
