Two Koan Circles
with Sarah Bender, Sensei

Sundays, June 18 and June 25, 3:00 to 5:00 PM

Creek Bend Zendo, 7528  Jenkin Place

Suggested donation:  $10

No previous experience with koans is needed. Come and play!

If you would like to receive the koans ahead of the sessions
contact:  Sarah Bender  sembender@gmail.com

When we welcome koans into the circle of our shared meditation, they can come alive in our midst with power and beauty,

Zen ancestors appearing in our time. Then, who is the host and who the guest?  They join our circle and create with us a fresh experience of our ancient Way of Awakening.

It’s a bit like making art together—and here we are making a way of life for our times. You never know what it will look like until it shows up!


A Sutra Jam!
Sunday, June 25, 6:30 PM
7528 Jenkin Place

This is the second Sutra Jam for those who could not make the first jam in May and for those who did make the first jam!  Come with instruments, or without, and sing sutras together.

We take our time with them, and let them lead us a bit….
quite a bit of improvisation is involved here, and it’s delightful to feel how different aspects of our familiar sutras light up and warm our hearts.
