Beginners Mind Experience

All new members at the Brooklyn Zen Center are strongly encouraged to take part in the Beginner’s Mind Experience (BME), a 3-month program that will introduce them to the various aspects of community practice at BZC.

As part of this program, members have the opportunity to join a peer practice group, experience various forms of wholehearted activity practice, have private practice discussions with teachers, and receive special rates on two introductory classes: Introduction to Zen Buddhism and Meditation in Everyday Life.  The BME program provides members with a sense of the variety and intimacy of Zen practice in the BZC community — and also offer embodied experience with how we can engage these practices in our daily lives.

Each 3-month program begins with a kick-off meeting. The next kick-off meeting will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017, 9-10 a.m. The registration deadline is Wednesday, October 4, 2017. To take part in the Beginner’s Mind Experience, you must be a member.
