The Beginner’s Mind Experience (BME) is a program that introduces newcomers to the various aspects of community practice at the Brooklyn Zen Center. The next BME program starts on Monday, September 30!
As part of this program, participants have the opportunity to join a peer practice group, try practice discussion, experience various forms of wholehearted activity practice, and, if you are a BZC member, receive special rates on two introductory classes (valid for one year): Introduction to Zen Buddhism (starting September 24!) and Meditation in Everyday Life.
There are two ways to take part in the Beginner’s Mind Experience:
– Non-members can join the program for a fee of $100. To register to BME as a non-member please go here. Scholarships are available. To apply for a scholarship, please use this link and wait for approval BEFORE registering. Scholarship applications are due by Monday, September 23 at midnight.
The registration deadline for the Fall 2019 BME program is Friday, September 27 at midnight.
The 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.
