Beginning Zen Orientation

Beginning Zen: An Introduction to Zen Practice. An orientation for new comers who are beginning their Zen practice was held at the UP Bonsai Garden on May 6, 2018. The first session of a three-part weekend series is given to anyone interested in exploring Zen as a contemporary meditation practice-path.

The course is structured over a 3 week period and aims to convey a theoretical and practical understanding of Zen, within a lay context. Each Sunday session consists of an informal talk as well as an opportunity for practice with our regular Zen Center Manila or UP Bonsai Garden sitting group, which includes zazen (sitting meditation) and kinhin (walking meditation).
