Be Mindful at the Library presents: Zen in the Real World with the Providence Zen Center
Our mindfulness series is back by popular demand in 2011 and will include a number of classes, workshops, and lectures that will help you empower your mind and body to improve your health.
Starting or Deepening a Zen Buddhist Meditation Practice
A dharma teacher from the Providence Zen Center will provide an introduction to Zen meditation, take questions, and lead a short group meditation.
The Providence Zen Center is a residential and non-residential community of lay persons and monastics in rural Rhode Island. Founded by Korean Zen Master Seung Sahn, it is the head temple of the international Kwan Um School of Zen. Its mission is to provide Zen training for all, through daily practice, regularly scheduled retreats and an international exchange of teachers and practitioners. The Zen Center was founded in 1972 in Providence, Rhode Island and moved to its wooded fifty-acre home in Cumberland in 1979. For more information, visit: www.providencezen.org.
This program is made possible with help from the Robert Danforth Watkins Fund for Lifelong Learning.
