When you paint Spring, do not paint willows, plums, peaches, or apricots; just paint Spring. To paint willows, plums, peaches, or apricots is to paint willows, plums, peaches, or apricots – it is not yet painting Spring.”
– Eihei Dogen
Each one of us has a brush and in the same way we are the universe’s painting, we are also painting ourselves.
Painting Spring, a 3-day online intensive will focus on “applied Zen”
The Intensive will utilize our daily lives: relationships of all kinds, careers, and even creativity in a very direct and practical way to practice the unique painting that is us.
To help us we will combine Zazen, Daisan, Dokusan, Teisho and some interactive processes, digging deeply to empower the painter.
Maezumi Roshi was fond of saying “Be Practical.”
He was a great teacher and practitioner who always taught us that these two aspects- realization and practical embodied action- could vitalize each other and every aspect of our lives.
In fact, these aspects are not two.
Please bring your brush. Paint Spring!
