ACZC Happenings, 8/6-8/12 ⚡️
“Do something! Whatever it is, we should do something, including not-doing.”
- Shunryu Suzuki
ZEN CENTER HAPPENINGS - WEEK OF 8/6 - 8/12
We’re still on vacation but time is fleeting and soon we won’t be! Which means our triumphant return to the zendo is imminent and we hope you’ll come practice with us soon.
In the meantime, the podcast will be back next week, but we’d be willing to bet there are episodes from the catalog that you haven’t heard yet. Find them at http://aczc.org/aczcpodcast and all your favorite podcast platforms.
And now without further ado…This Week in Zen!
All sessions hosted in person and on Zoom unless otherwise marked (email us for quick and easy Zoom access info):
Monday, 8/8 at 7:30pm
Sit & talk w/ Dave Cuomo - Dave returns with a potentially pertinent question: In a teaching of non-self, who's actually steering the ship of self!? Is there a ghost in the machine? Are we just dust in space? Is there actually a big mind host around to host the guest of our small thinking brain?? Let’s discuss!
Wednesday, 8/10 at 7:30pm (Zoom Only)
Koan Night is back! Yunmen said, “In the entire Universe there is just one treasure, and it's hidden away in your lump of flesh.” Sounds like it's time for a treasure hunt, y'all. Can we dig out this precious nugget without hurting ourselves in the process?? Let's find out!
Thursday, 8/11 at 7pm (Zoom Only)
Yoga w/ Nina - One hour of slow flow yoga with ACZC’s own Nina Snow, followed by one half hour of that sweet sweet zazen.
Friday, 8/12 at 8am
Join us for the Heart Sutra Chanting Service. It's honor our ancestors week as we chant the Heart Sutra in the classic Japanese (no Japanese speaking skills required) followed by the Daihishin Darani.
Tuesday - Friday, 7am - 8am - Morning Sit.
One simple hour of what we do best - just sitting. Optional five minute stretch break offered in the middle.
That’s all for this week. See you soon!
