Zen practitioner Brenda Shoshanna has developed this interactive e-course in which you will learn out about zazen (meditation), the heart of Zen practice. You will also receive exercises which allow you to integrate the basic teachings of Zen into your everyday lives. You will explore the nature of koans, confront the hungry ghost, and meet the monkey mind.
Brenda Shoshanna, profiled as a Living Spiritual Teachers on Spirituality & Practice, is a psychologist, therapist, workshop leader, and teacher. Her work is devoted to integrating East and West, psychology and spirituality. Her books include Zen Miracles: Finding Peace in an Insane World, Zen and the Art of Falling in Love, and Jewish Dharma: A Guide to the Practice of Judaism and Zen. (see below for more)
The 12 emails for “Zen and Everyday Life” each introduce a teaching, provide commentary on its meaning, and suggest ways to practice it. Short audios provide more insights. You will also have access to the recording of a one-hour teleconference with Brenda from the first offering of this e-course.
During this e-course you will be encouraged to go from the Zen mountain to the couch, bringing your newfound well-being and insights right back home into our daily life.
