22 April @10:15am – Guest Speaker Fugan, Eugene Bush

Fugan, Eugene Bush, D.D., began formal Zen practice in 1982, was ordained as a priest in 2005 and received Dharma Transmission from Katherine Thanas in 2010. Gene currently serves as the Support Net Leader of Santa Cruz Zen Center.

He also teaches the traditional practice of sewing Buddha’s Robe (rakusu and okesa). His paid work was as a teacher in a public alternative high school in Santa Cruz. He is most interested in the ways in which formal practice trains us for everyday life. Please join us for a talk by Fugan this upcoming Saturday!

Every Saturday we offer early morning zazen (seated meditation), a brief drop-in meditation instruction at 8:30 am. And again zazen at 9:25 am. We wrap up with a dharma talk at 10:15 am followed by a ceremony if applicable, then tea and cookies.

Please join us Saturdays and we hope to see you often!
