Everyday Zen Dialog: We're All In This Together

Nov 10th 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

We’re All In this together

Community, Commitment & Courage in Difficult Times

A workshop with Chris Fortin and James Flaherty
Saturday,  November 10    10:00am - 4:30 pm    

DEER RUN ZENDO, CORTE MADERA (directions will be e-mailed to registrants)


Please join us as we uncover and awaken the courage within us, individually and shared, in the community of Sangha. Positive transformation can happen in our current world, when so much is being shifted, when so much is being challenged —  if we will step in and not turn away. Of course, that can be extraordinarily challenging. But it is within our capacity when we are in touch with our true nature and supported by the vast wisdom and strength of community.  We will explore these topics with dialog, talks, and somatic exercises so that you come away with a renewed experience of your own and our shared courage and commitment.
