New Zen Group in Madison, WI and Public Talk

Postby Meido on Wed Sep 09, 2015 10:18 pm

Hello All,

I've recently relocated from Chicago to Madison. We're working to get a practice community going here, and have the following events coming up:

1. A weekly group will meet at Green Life Cafe on Monroe St., Mondays from 6:45-8pm. Zazen and discussion will be offered; beginners are welcome.The first meeting is this coming Monday, 9/14!

2. I will give an open talk at that location on Friday 9/25, 6:30pm titled "Zen: Seeing Your True Nature". The Cafe will stay open for us from 5:30-6:30 serving tea and coffee, allowing us to have some social time before the talk.

Just a note: the suggested donations mentioned on the flyers are just to allow us to pay rental fees for the space. No one will be turned away from any event for inability to donate.

Additionally, one of my students, Myoan Radtke, is coordinating a group called "Meditation, Mindfulness and Movement for Recovery and Health" which is sponsored by Edelweiss Behavioral Health here in town. Edelweiss specializes in outpatient treatment for individuals with eating disorders, dietary counseling and individual psychotherapy. Though not strictly focused on Zen practice, zazen and breathing are among the tools used by the group. This group is not open to walk-ins and there is a charge, but anyone interested can pm me and I'll pass you on to Myoan. Health insurance may be accepted.

Please help us by sharing this info with anyone in the Madison area. Am hoping some ZFI folks may be in the area...always wonderful to meet you in person! Anyone wishing to sign up on our Madison-area email list (which also includes events/news for Korinji, which is about 50 miles from Madison) can do so at http://www.madisonrinzaizen.org.

:Namaste:

Best of luck with the new location and group.

Unfortunately that's a bit of a drive for me. However if you ever end up in eastern Massachusetts let me know. :lol2:

Perhaps someone will record the dharma talk, and post it in the online members' area at rinzaizen.org?

That would be lovely!
