Reverend Daesun will explore with you the Dharma & the Dao through a moving meditation practice. The format of the class constitutes exploring the mindfulness foundations of body, sensations, energy, mind and dharma using the 16 yang Tai Chi form as a vehicle for this exploration. As Buddhism comes to China, Buddhists and Daoists collaborated to blossom fruitful conversations which symbiotically elevated both practices towards higher expressions. During the Fall 2017 season, we will explore, bodily, this mutual benefit between the Buddha’s Dharma of the Deathless with the Lao Tzu’s teachings on the Dao.
Meditation is the path to attaining ultimate freedom by calming, focusing and empowering the mind. The essence of Zen Meditation is a direct pointing to the ultimate reality. Direct means a straightforward experience that goes beyond any concept or language. This is not only the way to center and pacify our mind, but to see into our original nature, which is the foundation of attaining liberation.
Come join us in exploring the breath and the depth of the heart to live each moment to the fullest. On this silent retreat, open to both new and experienced meditators, we will focus on cultivating a quality of conscious presence that embraces our heart, mind and body with acceptance and wisdom. Sitting and moving meditation, dharma talks, small group discussions, contemplative nature walks, and healthy vegetarian meals will allow us to deepen our practice.
