Study Class: Zen and the Art of Saving the Planet – July 6 – August 10

Six Wednesdays 6pm – 7pmPT, July 6 – August 10 – online
with Annette JoE’ Lille

Beloved Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh is blazingly clear: “there’s one thing we all have the power to change, which can make all of the difference, and that is our mind. Our way of looking, seeing, and thinking determines every choice we make, the everyday actions we take or avoid, how we relate to those we love or oppose, and how we react in a crisis.”

Zen & the Art of Saving the Planet

From Annette:

I have found Thich Nhat Hanh’s latest book to be a simple and straightforward response to the complex and ever-present questions we live as Buddhist practitioners. He has lived war, he has lived relocation, he has lived activism and he has developed community. We can learn joy and love from his experience and wisdom. In the hour we have together we will open with zazen, read from the text and engage in comments and discussion.

Annette Lille came to Zen practice in 1972. She was initially ordained in 1983 following ten years of practice at San Francisco Zen Center and Tassajara Zen Mountain Center. Annette moved with her husband and two daughters to Sonoma County, California in 1986 where she continued her practice and study with an emphasis on hospital, end-of-life and hospice chaplaincy. Annette re-ordained with Jisho Warner Roshi in 1999 and received dharma transmission in 2013. She has served the Stone Creek Sangha in multiple practice and administrative roles and as a hospital and hospice chaplain for ten years. She finds her joy in zazen, writing and tending her flower garden.
