Tell us a bit about how your group was concieved
Inspired in part by the 200 hour yoga teacher trainings that have made yoga so widely available to people of all backgrounds, faiths, etc, and also wanting Zen to contribute a voice and some depth to the current mindfulness movement via linkage to an established lineage.
How many members do you serve? 200
Tell us about one exciting project, program, or other offering you are currently working on.
Our Online/Zoom Meditation and Mindfulness Leader Training recently graduated 10 trainees, bringing our total graduate number up to some 20 trainees. We'll be starting our next training cohort in late August/early fall 2021.
How do the Three Tenets inform your social engagement?
Not knowing, bearing witness, and direct action to further the growth of human consciousness through meditation and mindfulness practices are central to our approach. We feel that the spread of Meditation and Mindfulness practices, and their potential in the development of human consciousness may be the best hope for the future of our planet, or at least of the human race.
What is the most meaningful challenge your organization Faces?
Lack of unity among various divisions in the human family, resulting in lack of coherent collective action to solves major problems such as racism, climate change, and putting profits before benefits to the human race and to our planet as a whole.
