Zen teacher Karen Maezen Miller will
lead an introduction to Zen practices and
teachings during this weekend retreat, June
21-23. This retreat will focus on the practical application of Buddhist teachings to our
everyday lives at home and work. Participants will receive a full taste of the Zen
tradition. She will teach zazen (Zen meditation) with its emphasis on the breath, walking meditation, and an introduction to Zen
chanting. These are the traditional mindfulness practices that are incorporated into a
Zen retreat. The teachings are personal and
informal, appropriate to all practitioners
seeking the state of open-minded ease that
Zen calls “beginner’s mind.”
Karen Maezen Miller is a sensei (teacher) at
the Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles
and the author of two books on spirituality in everyday life, Hand Wash Cold and
Momma Zen. A frequent guest at the Rime
Center, she leads workshops and retreats
