Morning Meditation.

Daily Tues, Wed and Thurs 7:30-8:30 (Jan 16-18, 2018).

Join Hogen Sensei and the Christchurch MRO sangha for two 25-min periods of Zen meditation (zazen), as well as walking meditation. This is a wonderful way to start your day, practising stillness, acceptance and clarity of mind.

There may be an opportunity for a one-on-one dharma interview with Hogen Sensei. Open to all those who have received instruction in Zen meditation.

The morning meditations are part of a series of events offered by Zen teacher Ron Hogen Green who is visiting from the USA.

The events include a series of stimulating Zen events in Christchurch and two residential retreats in Staveley (near Methven): A weekend retreat on the Six Paramitas (perfections), and a week-long Zen meditation intensive (sesshin).

All are invited and welcome to attend any of these events. If you do not currently have a Zen practice please arrange to receive beginners instruction in Zen meditation with us by contacting Geoff on 021 238 4618 or christchurch@zen.org.nz

About the Teacher: Hogen Sensei has been engaged in formal Zen practice since 1978, and was in residential training at Zen Mountain Monastery for 12 years as a lay student and senior monastic.

He currently divides his time between living with his family in Pennsylvania on a farm and as a Zen teacher at the Zen Center of New York City. Hogen Sensei has visited New Zealand three times to offer talks, workshops and retreats.
