Buddhism Study & Practice Group Living Chan Workshop
by Abbot Guo-Xing and Nancy Bonardi
At each present moment we can choose either happiness or suffering. In our actual lives, at each present moment, all the people and all the objects we have contact with in our environment give rise various feelings of happiness or suffering in us. The physical and mental karma produced in each present moment can be chosen through the concepts and practices of living Chan.
Image of Mind
Many people continuously and repeatedly dwell on unhappy memories of the past. Through the concepts and practices of Living Chan, they come to the realization that these memories do not represent the present reality, allowing them to break free of the past and start anew.
Please wear comfortable clothing and arrive by 9:00 am. Bring a cushion, towel, socks. Free for students. $20 teacher's donation suggested for non-students. To register, email: email@example.com
Saturday, April 30, 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, Wang Center, Room 301
