Zen as a way of being means transforming ourselves, our lives, our being in the world into a “field of benefaction.” This is not about being nice, compliant, or passive. Zen bares the interactive, interdependent and co-creative networks that constitute life itself. The path of Zen includes awakening to our primal identity with and relationship to all being; and learning to navigate skillfully through these networks promoting awareness, care, cooperation, and harmony.
