ZL- Alive off the Cushion

Calling all Alumni! You asked for more ways to train together to help sustain and grow our community. Then you stepped up and offered to teach, share, and learn from each other.

Our monthly, online 90-minute gatherings are facilitated by long-time IZL community members: Jo Preston, Dennis Tirman, and Cindy Haq.

Join us for If You Can’t Get Out Of It, Get Into It – Using Wholeheartedness To Unlock Creativity And Energy
with Rebecca Ryan Roshi

June 16th from 11 am – 12:30 pm CT

Flip 8 reframes from the ego-centric, “It’s all about me” to the embodied and wise, “I’m all about it.” In this session, we’ll practice with YOUR CHALLENGES and YOUR BODY to make the flip and unlock creativity and energy. Participants will benefit from having: journal and pencil/pen, a space they can move around in, and a sense of humor.

P.S. Ryan Roshi did a related talk on Wholeheartedness for Chosei Zen’s 49-Day Challenge. Watch it here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCbSY6jREtQ
