Gatha Workshop

with Genjo Conway
April 25 9:00 am – noon
$25 – $50 Registration closes Apr 16

Please join us for a morning of practice. We will learn some of the traditional Gathas of the Soto school, as well as write some of our own. Together with zazen and a short chanting service, this morning will be filled with ease and joy.

Every activity, every action, is a new and singular opportunity for opening up. When we wake up, when we shower, mowing the lawn, seeing a forest or roadkill, even using the bathroom are all moments of practice. A traditional Zen practice for this is using short verses to bring our mindfulness fully into our activity. These verses, or prayers, are called Gathas.
