Cultivating a Field of Benefaction

A Zen Garland On-demand Course with Roshi Genki

 

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.

Lecture videos are provided as well as the recordings of the online discussion sessions.

Roshi Paul Genki Kahn

One of the living Zen masters of our time, Roshi Genki augments traditional Zen practices with modern psychology, philosophy, science, and socially engaged service to marginalized and disadvantaged communities. He has developed a thorough and profound holistic approach to Zen practice that offers personal and inter-relational development for skillful living in the world with love, service and joy. Roshi Genki describes this approach to spirituality as The Practice of Presence and Reclaiming the World. Roshi Genki emphasizes that the Zen training hall is our daily life, our way of being in the world with ourselves, our intimate circle, our work and our communities.
