As a student of Zen with more than 20 years of experience (16 years as a monk), the lecturer will be able to discuss the traditional three-month intensive meditation retreats which are held in summer and winter. There will also be a discussion about why Zen and Buddhism, and Zen/Buddhism, are so unique in their abilities to combine with the practices of other religions and spiritualities. There will be time for questions and answers.
