We eat and sleep to sustain our health, maybe exercise to look and feel better, read or study to stimulate the mind. The activity of our life is much like a piece of music. If it's all activity, it's just noise. When we integrate "rests" into the music, it becomes a dynamic beautiful expression. Zen /Chan allows us to find the sync between activity and inactivity, form and formless, to allow our life experience to be a beautiful and fulfilling expression of life.
This is a four-week series that covers fundamentals of Zen/Chan meditation for the UC Berkeley community, hopefully helping participants to establish and incorporate meditation into their daily routines and benefit from it. Step-by-step instructions will be given in this class. Anyone without meditation experience is welcome to join.
