Event Description

A weekend workshop in Spain with David Brazier

Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. Venue to be announced.

Life can get dulled by convention, routine and stress. Zen is fundamentally encounter: the kind that lifts one far beyond such dullness. Mindfulness is not simply a technique to be mastered in an individualistic way, but rather heart to heart opening that restores the zest and joy of being alive together - face to face or side by side, in meaningful action or deepest stillness. provocative or tender, yet always full of life. The term “Co-Zen” emphsises this quality of sparkling interaction. This is, therefore, a workshop for spiritual practitioners and for those interested in Buddhist psychology and therapy, but also for everyone who seeks the vitality of authentic meeting beyond the worries and cares of ordinary existence.

La vida puede ser constreñida por los convencionalismos, la rutina y el estrés. El zen es fundamentalmente encuentro: el tipo que le eleva a uno más allá de esa apatía. Mindfulness  no es simplemente una técnica que se debe dominar de una manera individualista, sino una apertura de corazón a corazón que restaura el entusiasmo y la alegría de estar juntos - cara a cara o lado a lado, en la acción llena de sentido o en la quietud más profunda. provocativa o tierna, pero siempre llena de vida. El término "Co-Zen" enfatiza esta calidad de interacción chispeante. Este es, por lo tanto, un taller para los practicantes espirituales y para aquellos interesados en la psicología y la terapia budistas, pero también para todos aquellos que buscan la vitalidad del encuentro auténtico más allá de las inquietudes y preocupaciones de la existencia ordinaria.

I wish I could attend!  However, a trip to Europe in November  from Korea takes a lot of plan in advance. So not this time.

Unfortunately, unable to attend as we will set up an event at the same time in France.

Running a Course in Korea and Elsewhere

Posted by David Brazier on August 3, 2018 at 1:40 0 Comments

I am currently leading courses on Buddhist psychology here in Seoul, Korea, but as I am putting the course onto this site as we go along, members of La Ville au Roi (Eleusis) are also responding so it is a bit as though the course is going on in several countries at the same time which is nice.

From The Paris Review:

For fifteen years the writer Varlam Shalamov was imprisoned in the Gulag for participating in “counter-revolutionary Trotskyist activities.” He endured six of those years enslaved in the gold mines of Kolyma, one of the coldest and most hostile places on earth. While he was awaiting sentencing, one of his short stories was…

The Buddha, Season 1, Episode 1

Posted by Geeta Chari on June 29, 2018 at 9:21 1 Comment

I have been watching The Buddha on Netflix, and although I came well-prepared to scoff, there is a surprising amount of food for thought from a Pureland perspective. What follows is a review of the Pureland touches in the episode, coloured inevitably by my upbringing in India, although I have now lived in Britain for more than half my life.

The scene opens in the republic of Kapilavastu, depicted as a green and pleasant land, with the Himalayan mountains as a backdrop. (I was…

Nembutsu Question

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on April 20, 2018 at 8:22 1 Comment

I found this in a book that I'm reading. It has challenged my current "understanding" of the Nembutsu. I tend to think of the name itself as salvation and the bridge to the Pure Land...

"...Nembutsu is not a means to gain salvation but a reflection of it. Shinran acknowledges there is nembutsu without true entrusting because he lived in an environment where nembutsu was recited for benefits and merit. By itself it cannot produce true entrusting. Nevertheless, they are inseparable as…
