Zen Meditation in 12 Step Recovery: Fresno, Feb 18, 2012
This half-day workshop is for those interested in exploring the connection between Zen Buddhist practice and teachings, and twelve step work. The event will be led by Abbess Myoan Grace Schireson, Zen teacher, psychologist, and founder of Central Valley Zen. Grace has guided and advised Tom Hawkins in establishing the Central Valley’s first Zen and Recovery group in Modesto in 2010. We will begin with zazen (zen meditation) instruction, followed by sessions of meditation, short lectures, and group discussions. Our focus will be to learn and share about incorporating Zen practice into our sober lives. Tea and snacks will be provided.
