Enlightenment for Everyone – Feb 2 – 23

Enlightenment for Everyone
with Sosan Flynn
THURSDAYS, February 2 – 23, 7-8:30pm CT
In person and on Zoom

Does the culmination of Buddha’s teaching seem unattainable to you? While it’s true that there is nothing to attain, it’s also true that we can sometimes feel unworthy or unable to fully engage the practice and realize the Buddha Way. In this class, we will study and practice with our own lives and with Katagiri Roshi’s teaching of: “You are really Buddha.” To assist our journey, we will also look at some examples from the text: The Book of Householder Koans: Waking Up in the Land of Attachments by Eve Marko and Wendy Egyoku Nakao.

Clouds in Water relies on a Gift Economics Model of resource transparency, suggested sliding scale tiers and no set fees in order to balance financial sustainability, the Buddhist practice of generosity, justice and equity. Clouds in Water is a community supported temple, relying primarily on the donations and class fees that our sangha offers.

Sliding Scale (All are welcome. No one will be turned away for lack of funds)

  • Level 1: $300 (covers teacher payments, and Clouds admin/staffing, and makes it possible for more people to attend who cannot afford the full amount)
  • Level 2: $200 (covers teacher payments and Clouds admin/staffing)
  • Level 3: $100 (covers Clouds admin/staffing)
  • Your Level: You choose the amount. No one is turned away due to inability to pay.

“We know in our hearts that there is a different way to be, a different way to live. Our generosity with one another is indeed resistance to the greed and fear that oppresses us. We provide for one another out of love for each other and love for ourselves. When we give, we acknowledge that all beings want to be happy.”
-Jacoby Ballard
