How do we work with the suffering we see around us, whether our own or that of others? Join us for an exploration of the part our individual practice plays in liberating ourselves and all beings from the three poisons of greed, anger and ignorance that lie at the heart of suffering. This workshop includes a morning session and afternoon session, both led by Hoko Karnegis, Vice Abbot of Sanshin Zen Community. Due to limited space we can accept only registered participants. There is a $12 registration fee per session and there will be opportunity to make a personal offering of your choosing to the teacher if you so wish.
