Course Detail: O_PKZEN - Hardcore Zen: Buddhist Wisdom from a Punk Rocker from Ohio

How can Zen Buddhism help us understand our perceptions, time, space, the nature of reality - and ourselves? How does sitting meditation figure into this understanding? This repeat course examines the basics of Soto Zen, based on the instructor's book and on Brad Warner's Hardcore Zen. Warner is a former punk rocker who became an ordained Zen master. His quirky approach is by turns entertaining and informative and sometimes laced with strong language. Each class will include a short meditation. Required books: Practical Zen, Tim Baehr; available from the instructor at the first class (under $9); Hardcore Zen, Brad Warner, ISBN 9781614293163, USM price $16.95. This is a seven-week class
