The World Could Be Otherwise: Imagination and the Bodhisattva Path

The human imagination is one of planet earth’s greatest untapped natural resources. Join Zen priests and writers Norman Fischer and Ruth Ozeki (Norman is a poet, Ruth is a prize-winning novelist) for a weekend of cultivating the imagination. We will practice writing, sitting and walking meditation, and contemplate the bodhisattva path of compassion and caring. Based on Norman’s book by the same title, discussion will focus on the six practices of a bodhisattva: generosity, ethical conduct, joyful effort, patience, meditation, and transcendent wisdom.
