A Half Day Session of Zen and Tea
Mar
30
8:30 AM08:30

A Half Day Session of Zen and Tea

This is a half day of Zen meditation and tea ceremony held in the beautiful Sunshine Springs Teahouse. It is an opportunity to give yourself the gift of a morning away from the busyness of the world, and to focus on your Heart, in the present moment. These opportunities give you the chance to develop a clarity and depth in your meditation practice that you can take back into your life. Whether you create space to notice a moment of natural beauty arising spontaneously, or cultivate the discipline to re-regulate yourself in the face of life’s difficulties, there is something available for everyone here.

We will be sitting in the lineage of Hollow Bones Rinzai Zen, utilizing Zazen and community support. The Zazen periods will consist of 30 minutes of still and silent meditation practice followed by 10 minutes of a walking meditation practice. Instruction in the form will be given at the beginning of the day, and there will be opportunities during the day for further guidance.

After a few hours of refining attention and presence, we will take a dive into the wonderful world of Gong Fu Cha. Tea and meditation have a long history together. And tea practice all on its own is an incredibly deep and subtle practice. We will take some time to dive into exceptionally fine and living teas on these days. The tea ceremony itself should be thought of as a moving meditation. it is a chance to begin to bring your meditative awareness off of the cushion and into the world, where it matters most. After the tea ceremony there will be more sitting with the tea medicine floating through awareness. To take a deeper dive into the world of tea, I recommend that you check out GlobalTeaHut.org for much more information, fine teaware, and even finer teas.

This is a wonderful opportunity to explore the nature of awareness, and cultivate discipline and attentional stability. The setting of the teahouse is unbeatable.

There is a suggested donation of $50. Feel free to donate more or less. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Due to the size of the teahouse, we are limited to 6 people. We will go from 8:30am-1:00pm. Once you make your commitment to joining, more information will follow.

It is currently best to email Rev. Bu Nan Daiko at BunanBrown@gmail.com to reserve your spot. Please ask if you have any questions.

Contemplative Tea Ceremony

These are reoccurring opportunities to come to the teahouse and have a meditative tea ceremony in the exquisite beauty of the teahouse. There will be many bowls or cups of tea poured in silence. After some time, we will open the space to limited conversation that arises from the experience.

During the winter, we will have the fireplace going, and will be lit by candle light. These events will be limited to 8 people.

$25 suggested donation.

If there are other times that your group would like to come up for tea, please email me at BunanBrown@gmail.com and we can make arrangements.

Mondo Zen Process

We will be holding Mondo Zen Process sessions after some of the Zazenkai’s. They will be limited to three participants, and others may come and witness. I love having the chance to bring the depth cultivated through the day-long practice into this space.

This process is a chance to take your seat in pure awareness and to awaken your boundless Heart. This is a precious opportunity to go deeper than your discursive mind, and rest in the ground of being.

Through the meeting of our minds, we hope to point out some of the subtler aspects of your own awareness, and illuminate the compassionate choice that you always have in the face of your angst.  The Mondo Process is a distillation of the Koan system of traditional Zen, into the 14 Koans that have been updated for the post-post modern 21st century mind.  It includes pointing out instructions, conscious embodiment, radical ownership, emotional maturity, and a way to take this process into your life.  

This Process comes out of the Hollow Bones Rinzai Zen tradition led Jun Po Roshi. Bu Nan has been authorized to facilitate this process by Jun Po, and is honored to go through this process with you. The process consists of 14 Koans that we may or may not make it all the way through in one sitting. It is not important to make it all the way though in each session. What is important is that we directly realize, in each moment, the Clear Deep truth that this process reveals.

There is a suggested donation 0f $150 for this process. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
