New Views, Experiential Shifts & the Craft of Zen
A journey from culture & art through the use of language to the heart of Zen Buddhism. Join Zentatsu, Richard Baker, one of the most original Zen teachers of our time.
„Life begins with the Breath. Practice begins with Attention to the Breath.“
Enter the World of Zen Buddhism
…which barely fits into our cultural categories. Baker Roshi will shape language and develop perspectives that will help you see the world from a yogic point of view.
Develop the Craft of Practice
…which can be learned by cultivating ‚attentionality‘. Attention unlocks the doors to new perspectives. Let’s study how to widen our attentional bandwidth.
Connect with other Practitioners
…whom you’ll first just meet in the lectures and Q&A’s online. If you participate though, we are ready to build community around our Weekly Zen meetings.
A Path for Seekers
Sometimes, we have a question, and it’s just a matter of finding an answer. Sometimes we know there is a question, but we haven’t found it yet. We know it’s there, but we can’t quite grasp it. And sometimes, we don’t even realize there could be a question. There are questions hiding in seeming certainties. The seeker feels these questions. Seeks them. Lives them. Asks about them. In these Weekly Zen talks, Baker Roshi will explore questions: The questions of Zen and the questions of life. We hope you will join this exploration!
Greetings from Baker Roshi
Hello, my name is Richard Baker, Zentatsu Myoyu.
I am sharing teachings with you that I have received from my Teacher, Suzuki Shunryu Roshi. I met him in 1961. I saw he was the most wise, realized, and evolved person I had ever met, and I decided to commit my life to realizing what he was about, to living my life with and for him, and to helping him in any way I could during his life – and then to continuing his life and my life through his Lineage Teachings. Everything I may be able to share is arising from my Zen Practice with him. Let’s find out what this Zen Practice is about and how it can be about you!
