Buddhism Plain & Simple
The Center will offer an introductory class on Buddhism from February 17 through March 14. The class is intended to study Buddhism through practicing Buddhism. Students who wish to attend should register with the AZC office and begin reading Steve Hagen's book "Buddhism Plain & Simple". We will study the Buddha's basic teaching as we incorporate daily zazen into our everyday routine.
Students are expected to read and be prepared to discuss the book at the weekly classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6-7 pm. Additionally, students are expected to come daily for morning or evening practice, and participate in the Saturday mid-morning work and sitting. On Sunday mornings during the class there will be an optional silent sunrise walk from 7-8 am.
Class members can meet with Seiju individually to discuss practice questions during "office hours" which will be available on Wednesday and Thursday, noon until 1 pm, during the class. A donation to the Center is requested ($50 suggested), but not required. Click here or on the book image to take you to PayPal. If there are conflicts in your schedule, you can discuss the situation with Seiju beforehand.
This is an opportunity to study Buddhism through practicing the three treasures: Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. Please contact the office if you have any questions.
