ABOUT ZEN ALIVE!

We always ask questions. What is real and what is delusion? Living an examined life can be a pain in the neck. And then, there is the point where Zen practice, life in community, and our everyday lives meet. Life encountered directly! Before we have time to slap the good or bad label on it, we see it all: beautiful sunrises, bad service, political news, global warming, our fast-paced digital life, love, time with friends, sickness and aging and death... all happening at the same time.

The world of dew

is the world of dew.

And yet, and yet—

—Kobayashi Issa (1763 - 1828)

Issa said it so well in this haiku: The world of dew is the world of dew. And yet, and yet—

We will explore this intersection of this life, this world on the first Sunday of each month* (exceptions, see below), local and guest Zen Buddhist teachers will explore how the famous Zen texts we chant are meant as tools that support our practice in what some people call “real life.”

There is no unreal life - as long as you live it, it cannot be anything but real for you. And, as we said in the beginning: "Living an examined life in some ways is a pain in the neck." We may think everything should be different from how it is, and at other times we believe everything should stay forever exactly like this! And yet, and yet... it changes. Always.

Please come to help us explore this theme through the practices of zazen (sitting meditation), kinhin (walking meditation), Dharma talks, and warm and inclusive conversation over a cup of tea.
