All members of Brooklyn Zen Center are eligible to take part in the Beginner’s Mind Experience, a new 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. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember, you must be a member of BZC to participate in the Beginner’s Mind Experience; you can become a member here.
New peer groups for the Beginner’s Mind Experience start every few months as follows. Follow the links to see a full schedule of the BME gatherings and to register for the peer-group that’s best for you.
