Entering the Way
Ground yourself by committing to a genuine spiritual path
Do you long for a clear spiritual path that is practical and meaningful? Zen Master Robert Althouse can help you understand the nature of the spiritual journey and what is required.
This class will begin by appreciating the nature of the spiritual journey as it's presented through myth and stories from around the world. These stories will help you understand some of the common pitfalls you may encounter on your own spiritual path.
Robert will also speak specifically about the nature of the Zen spiritual path as taught and practiced at the Zen Life & Meditation Center, Chicago. He'll explain some of the beginning practices of studying the precepts, taking refuge and koan study.

"We have not even to risk the adventure alone
for the heroes of all time have gone before us.
The labyrinth is thoroughly known . . .
we have only to follow the thread of the hero path.
And where we had thought to find an abomination
we shall find a God.
And where we had thought to slay another
we shall slay ourselves.
Where we had thought to travel outwards
we shall come to the center of our own existence.
And where we had thought to be alone
we shall be with all the world."
