Examining Our Worldviews from a Zen Perspective

 Examining Our Worldviews from a Zen Perspective

A Three Class Zoom Series

Led by Sensei Darla Myoho Fjeld

Tuesdays, June 7, 14, & 21, 7-8:30 p.m.


In this class we will examine the pictures of our lives and the world that may hinder us from “seeing as is.” These worldviews have developed as part of our conditioning and are often unconscious. They come from our teachers, religious and cultural backgrounds, parents, advertisements, books and all the other influences that surround our lives. As Zen students, for example, we begin to notice that our worldview that we are separate or even alienated from the rest of the world is a delusion. Many people in the U.S. still operate in a Three-tiered world of heaven-earth-hell. What are other ways to look at the world? We will look at questions such as: How do I view other people? How do I see my life? This class will give us a chance to do a deep dive into ourselves to see what is there.

All are welcome to zoom in for this.  $20 per class for Members; $30 per class for Non-Members
