One-day workshop with Rev. Keiryu Liên Shutt

For self-identified People of Color

Does your mind seem to “be all over the place”? Do you find yourself worrying a lot? Do you feel easily overwhelmed and filled with anxiety? Do you obsess about “shoulds’” and “coulds’” and, therefore, find it hard to focus?

Buddhist teachings and meditation practices have long addressed ways to be with such emotions and thoughts. In this one-day, we will gather and to learn ways in which we can work with worry and anxiety. You’ll learn ways to be with these emotions and be able to practice meditations, which can foster calm and ease in body and mind.

Sitting and walking meditation, Dharma teachings, group discussions and experiential exercises will be used.

Keiryu Liên Shutt was Dharma transmitted by Zenkei Blanche Hartman. Drawing from her monastic practices in the U.S. and overseas, she endeavors to share ways in which the deep settledness of traditional practices can be brought into everyday life. She's based at San Francisco Zen Center but also teaches at East Bay Meditation Center and other Bay Area groups.
