7pm – Enlivenment: Zen Icebreaker
May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Going and coming, we are never astray,
with thought that is no-thought,
Singing and dancing is the voice of the law.”
Hakuin’s Song of Zazen
Could it be a trip to the north passage? A form/ no form discussion in monastery style? Or, an online bartending class?
No, Enlivenment is a relaxed and entertaining community event organized by the programs committee. We’ll have some fun connecting with sangha members, and showcase our creative side — yes that’s you!
When: Saturday May 23rd, 7pm
Where: in the online emptiness of the internet — using Zoom
Who: the sangha (zen community), emcee’d by Koshin and organized by the programs committee

Enlivenment: Zen Icebreaker is sure to be an event to remember during the COVID-19 shelter in place period. We’re living through a pandemic. Let’s explore creative practice for this night of connecting with sangha members in a different light. Offer up something of yourself that may not be known to your sangha friends and have some fun doing it.
