Many in our community belong to local practice centers in various traditions where training is available. Others have elected to join the Zen Peacemaker Order two-year training program. With our Zen Peacemaker Core Trainings offering, we want to make the very most important and fundamental Zen Peacemaker practices of meditation, Council, and the Three Tenets easily available to everyone. These Core Trainings are free, offered at different times to support work and school schedules, and repeated quarterly. These can be taken à la carte and repeated as you wish.
“Living for one hundred years does not compare with living for one day and arousing determination for the way.”

We will offer a basic, introductory training in meditation, unattached to any specific tradition, that participants can put into personal practice immediately. It has been said, “Stillness answers every question.” Let’s explore that together. This class can be taken multiple times.
In this Introduction, we will briefly present the history of Council, explain the guidelines we use, and then experience a short Council session.
In our hour-long session, we will present and describe the Three Tenets and have time to take your questions.
