The Zen Path
Meeting in Room 3
Starting in January, 2016 Mike Zinke, a Zen Bodhisattva Teacher from the Great Lake Zen Center and member of the Waukesha United UU congregation, will be leading a once monthly session discussing following the path of Zen to find peace in your everyday life. The sessions will be one hour long and will start with a dharma talk followed by a question and answer session pertaining to Zen practice/teachings and a short meditation period. The meditation sittings will be very informal so if you have never sat meditation or feel that it is something you might have trouble doing, please come and try. Different meditation techniques will be explained to help you feel comfortable in sitting. Please feel free to sit in a chair while meditating, if this is more confortable for you.
Sessions will be held on the second Thursday of each month with the initial session starting January 14, 2016 and will run from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. If you have lot of knowledge of Zen, a little knowledge of Zen or no idea what Zen is about, please join us for the sessions and join in on the discussions.
