Odyssey: Descending Into Zen With a Beginner's Mind

Suzuki Roshi writes, "In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's mind there are few." Join in a glide, often a dive, into a plethora of Zen Buddhist practices and teachings—sitting meditation, art, writing, and walking—a virtual playground set designed for beginners and more seasoned veterans alike. Works by lifelong Zen practitioners and teachers, such as Natalie Goldberg's The True Secret of Writing and John Tarrant's Bring Me the Rhinoceros and Other Zen Koans That Will Save Your Life, will serve as ordinary, sometimes extraordinary, conveyors on a path for anyone who wants to transform challenging states into experiences of growth. These practices incite one to expand into a wider view, both spiritual and secular. The instructor is Jerry Webster.
