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.

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…

Shinran and Ippen

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on April 16, 2018 at 8:00 0 Comments

On Saturday evening our regular study group met on Skype where we looked at and discussed material from "No Abode", a beautiful book about the life of Ippen, ancient Japanese Purland master and "The Essential Shinran" which documents the life of Shinran Shonin, one of Honen's most famous disciples. We had a very stimulating discussion which I enjoyed greatly. We will be meeting again on Saturday 19th May at 9pm British time. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to join us.…

Buddhism Day

Posted by Andrew Ralph Cheffings on March 28, 2018 at 15:46 1 Comment

I wasn't getting as much done as I intended to or 'needed' to in my previous mode of moving between lots of different activities, so I decided to devote one day a week to a particular activity, and this week I'm doing a Buddhism day. I've finally managed to get started on Vow 22, then I did some online research and catching up with mostly Buddhist emails, then I wrote a dharma talk. I plan to do a service run-through later. It's certainly easier for me to get things done this way. Namo Amida…

REMEMBERING SAIKO SENSEI

Posted by David Brazier on March 19, 2018 at 21:43 1 Comment

Today is the fourteenth anniversary of the death of Gisho Saiko. Sensei Saiko was the founder of Shinshu Counselling. He wrote a number of books and presented his ideas at international conferences as well as through his university and Buddhist organisations in Japan. He referred to my work in his books and when I visited Japan a few months before his death, he took on to invite me to a number of gatherings and hosted my wife and I in royal fashion. He was enthusiastic that I should play a…
