6 Tuesdays, August 21 - September 25, 6:30-8:30 pm. led by Sekkei Audrey Charlton and by Shosan Garth Monroe
The practice of Zen allows each of us to sit upright in the middle of our life as it actually is. When we glimpse our true relationship with all beings, this naturally leads to an ethical way of life.
What are basic Zen ethics? The Sixteen Bodhisattva Precepts offer an exploration of interconnectedness and mutual ethical responsibility.
This is an Intermediate Level class, open to intermediate and advanced practitioners. Each class includes 25 minutes of meditation, study, and discussion.
Sekkei Audrey Charlton is senior member of HZC and serves on the Board of Directors. She is also a member of the Center's Kaleidoscope Working Group, and a retired consultant.
Shosan Garth Monroe is a long-time dedicated student of Zen, at Houston Zen Center as well as other renowned practice centers across the country. He is also the CFO of a private equity firm.
Participants are requested to use either of two texts: Being Upright, by Tenshin Reb Anderson (copies are available at the Center for purchase) or Waking Up to What We Do, by Diane Rizzetto (copies are available online and will possibly be available at the Center). Each class begins with meditation.
