We meditate together in silence. After which we read aloud word by word, sentence by sentence the Zen Buddhist stories from the Blue Cliff Record a 13th century Chinese collection of Buddhist Practice interactions over 500 years, mostly from Tang and Song Dynasty times. Discussion focuses on the relevance of our meditation and the elucidation of these stories to our daily lives. Students must commit to regular attendance.
We meet in Chapin Chapel every Wednesday at 5pm during the semester.
