Register for Aspects of Practice 2021
We invite you to join the 2021 Aspects of Practice period—six weeks of practice, renewal, study, and discussion led by BZC practice leaders Gerry Oliva, Andrea Ryushin Thach and Ross Blum. Aspects of Practice has traditionally encouraged newer students to root their Zen practice. It also includes the wider BZC community who wish to refresh themselves and make a sustainable commitment to practice and support our senior practice leaders.
Practice leaders will lecture on Saturdays, lead Monday morning discussions, and offer a class on six successive Thursdays. All of these events are open to everyone. In addition, there will be regular practice discussion. Each sangha participant is strongly encouraged to meet for practice discussion with one of the the Aspects team members or one of the other senior students at least once during Aspects. Your interest, support, and encouragement can be of help to the whole sangha.
We ask that you consider carefully the commitment you can make and indicate on this form what you are committing to. This is your registration for the Thursday Class and the two sesshins, Sunday, Oct. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 13.
Please sign up by Monday, September 27.
