THE WHOLE EARTH IS THE TRUE HUMAN BODY: A DAY OF MEDITATION AND GARDENING WITH WENDY JOHNSON – POSTPONED

We have decided to postpone to a later date in light of the devastating impact of the fires on our community.

As Stone Creek celebrates the purchase of the building and land it occupies, we will come together to encounter Zen teachings and lay the foundations of our new gardens.  The first part of the day we will look at the intersection of Zen practice and engagement in the physical world: sitting, taking up the Dharma, and looking at our path of practice on and as this Earth.  After a picnic lunch, we will join together for a work afternoon.  Families with little ones are welcome to join for lunch and the afternoon work day if preferred. BYO bag lunch. Suggested donation $40 for members, $60 for non-members.

POSTPONED UNTIL APRIL 28 – DHARMA AND WHITE PRIVILEGE: WAKING UP TOGETHER

Please note: because so may people reached out asking to reschedule because of the conflict with the women’s marches, the workshop is postponed until April 28

As white practitioners in the U.S., we have been, and are, shaped by social, economic and other systems that benefit us at the expense of people of color. To the extent that we are unaware of this system of white privilege and racial conditioning, we are not free to make skillful choices about how to act within it. Rather, we unwittingly behave in ways that lead to suffering for ourselves, our fellow practitioners, our community and the larger society.

In this 1/2 day of practice, guided meditation, self-reflection and dialog we will investigate our acculturated belief systems and how they serve as barriers to awakening, both our own and others’. We will explore ways of moving towards greater freedom and the opportunities for action that open as our minds become less encumbered by constructed identities.

Sat. April 28  11:30-4:30
