How do we experience ourselves and our world? How do we interpret what’s happening and who we are? What motivates us? Where do instinctive reactions come from? Ultimately: where does the mind come from and how does it work?

For the Wednesday evening Dharma Talks after Practice Period this Spring Guiding Teacher Nomon Tim Burnett will focus on the wonderful new summary of neuroscience in the book Seven and a Half Lessons about the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett, and make connections to Buddhist psychology and philosophy.

You may find it helpful to obtain the Barrett book - it’s not long. 

Registration is not required - find to drop in - but Nomon Tim will send materials and updates to those who register for this event. 

Wednesday evening schedule:
6:50pm han starts
7:00pm zazen (sitting meditation, dokusan available*)
7:30pm kinhin (walking meditation)
7:40pm service (bows and chanting)
8:00pm talk and discussion
8:50pm refuge chant
8:55pm announcements
9:00pm close

* Simply let Nomon Tim know by Zoom chat or email ahead if you would like to have a private check in (dokusan) during zazen/kinhin. 

Note that on the first Wednesdays of each month we’ll hold our Bodhisattva Precepts Ceremony instead of having a talk.
