Tassajara Zen Mountain Center Weekend Workshop

Life is hard: Love and Compassion are necessities for basic sustainability.

Based on Norman's recent book Training in Compassion: Zen Teachings on the Practice of Lojong, which is in turn based on a popular traditional Indo-Tibetan text, this weekend workshop will offer practical exercises for compassionate daily living. We will study the text and engage in discussion and imaginative exercises designed to bring the material home to the particularity of our lives today. Our work will focus on reducing self-centeredness, which comes so naturally to us, yet causes us so much pain -- and developing compassion.

Books can be purchased in advance and will be available at the Tassajara bookstore.

Retreat fee: $170 ($145/member)
