TEACHERS: Erin Oke and Jude Star
THEME: Confounding Questions and Constructed Identities
MEDITATION: The sound of one hand clapping
INTERACTIVE: The way we were
Erin: The Zen tradition of practicing with koans can make allies of our confusion, doubt and uncertainty and tap into something creative, unexpected, beautiful and wise. For tonight’s sit, we’ll each work with a classic koan, trying to “not know” our way into spontaneous discoveries and maybe even jolt ourselves more awake in the process.
Jude: In part 2 we will explore identity and how the identities we formed in life have helped and supported us, but also where they’ve held us back or restricted our growth.
