the beginner’s mind experience

All members of Brooklyn Zen Center are eligible to take part in the Beginner’s Mind Experience, 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, try practice discussion, experience various forms of wholehearted activity practice, and receive special rates on two introductory classes (valid for one year): Introduction to Zen Buddhism and Meditation in Everyday Life. Our intention is that this 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.

If you have any questions about this program, please contact:

Remember, you must be a member of BZC to participate in the Beginner’s Mind Experience; you can become a member here.
