Upaya: POETRY OF AWAKENING from China, Japan, and India.

July 6 - 8, 2018
Begins 7/6 at 5 pm, all day 7/7, ends 7/8 at noon.
Upaya Zen Center
1404 Cerro Gordo Road
Santa Fe, NM 87501

Join Sensei Kaz Tanahashi and Stanford Scholar Linda Hess, PhD in a weekend exploration of Buddhist poets Hanshan (6th-7th-century China), Dogen (13th-century Japan), Hakuin (18th-century Japan), Ryokan (19th-century Japan) and Kabir (15th century India). Why study them together? Because they are radical, powerful, and sometimes funny; because they are interested in delusion and awakening in this body and mind; because they are poets who use language in wondrous ways; because Kaz and Linda have worked with them for many years. In this retreat, we learn, write, see a film, and may even sing.


Cost / How to register: $264 includes meals. Optional on-campus lodging is an additional fee.
Register online, registrar@upaya.oirg, or 505-986-8518.

Upaya Zen Center
1404 Cerro Gordo Road
Santa Fe, NM 87501


Our capacity to attend to the pain and suffering of others, as professionals or simply as helpful friends, is proportional to our capacity to attend to our own pain and suffering. In this experiential and mindfulness meditation-based program, we explore who we are and what we are feeling and then open to the genuine personhood of others, beyond our projections. With that clarity, we can then experience genuine empathy and compassion for another person without unconsciously mixing up their painful experience with our own. Self-care and resilience building in facing the challenges of making ourselves available to the pain of others is also addressed. Fleet is an author, meditation teacher, management consultant, end-of-life care educator, and social activist.


Cost / How to register: $360 includes meals. Optional on-campus overnight lodging is extra.
