San Francisco Zen Center Workshop: The World Could be Otherwise

  • Saturday, May 25, 2019

  • San Francisco Zen Center, 300 Page StreetSan Francisco, CA (map)

The title of this workshop comes from Norman’s new book, The World Could Be Otherwise: Imagination and the Bodhisattva Path, which argues for an imaginative approach to spiritual practice for our difficult times.

We want the world to be otherwise, and it can be, if we open our hearts and imaginations to new possibilities.

The book—and this workshop—are built around the idea of the bodhisattva path, re-framing our lives around compassion and expansiveness, rather than fear and contraction. The path consists of six traditional practices, giving, ethical conduct, patient forbearance, joyful effort, meditation, and imaginative wisdom.

We’ll spend the afternoon practicing silent meditation and talking about these six great practices, and how to make them our own.

Fees for afternoon workshop: $60; $54 current SFZC members; $48 limited income. Fee includes lunch.
