Zen priest Karen Maezen Miller will lead an introduction to Zen practices and teachings on "Ordinary Mind is the Way." , during the weekend of November 11th – 13th. Participants will receive a full taste of the Zen tradition. She will teach zazen (Zen meditation) with its emphasis on the breath, walking meditation, and an introduction to Zen chanting. These are the traditional mindfulness practices that are incorporated into a Zen retreat. This retreat will also teach on Zen lessons in fearlessness, forgiveness, presence, acceptance, and contentment. The teachings are personal and informal, and will be held in the Rime Center's upstairs shrine room

Karen Maezen Miller is a sensei (teacher) at the Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles and the author of two books on spirituality in everyday life, Hand Wash Cold and Momma Zen. A frequent guest at the Rime Center, she leads workshops and retreats around the country.
