After a couple of months of attending weekly meditation with the Sangha and establishing a sitting practice at home, you can take part in an Orientation to discover more about the practice you are engaging with. This takes place during the Spring Sesshins but plans to include private Orientation talks during the Thursday meditation meetings are now being considered.
During Orientation there are six talks followed by questions on:
- Harmonising the Body
- Harmonising the Mind
- Koans, Teisho and Dokusan
- Zen Manners and Practice within the Zendo
- The Buddha
- The Mu Koan
