About the Event
Reposted from our partners at Nashville POC Sangha.
"Our meditation practice profoundly offers us the opportunity to become more intimate with our lives, moment by moment. Indeed, Dogen Zenji stated famously: 'Enlightenment is Intimacy with All Things'. We can wake up to our lives while being more fully in relationship with our experience through kind loving awareness. So we'll explore this way of orienting in the practice directly, through the cultivation of presence, loving-kindness and trust.
This in-person offering by guest teacher Yong Oh will include periods of meditation, dharma reflections and Q&A. It is open to all self-identified people of color only.
