Overview

Ben Connelly's Inside Vasubandhu's Yogacara is a practical, down-to-earth guide to Vasubandhu's classic work "Thirty Verses of Consciousness Only" that can transform modern life and change how you see the world. Connelly's warm and wise voice unpacks and contextualizes its wisdom, showing us how we can apply its ancient insights to our own modern lives, to create a life of engaged peace, harmony, compassion, and joy. This is a great introduction to a philosophy, a master, and a work whose influence reverberates throughtout modern Buddhism.

Our practice this Sunday will include sitting meditation (zazen), walking meditation (kinhin), a Dharma talk, and a brief Zen service (liturgy). Our Guest teacher will give the talk. Eko Jeff will offer dokusan during meditation. You can sign up for dokusan when you arrive.

Newcomers are welcome. If you are a first time participant, please try to arrive by 9:10 so we can show you around a bit. 

Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. We supply cushions, kneeling benches and chairs. Please be at your seat by 9:25 a.m. There is no charge for sittings. We welcome your donation.
