Musho at Magpie Books in Catskill

posted in: Event 0

I’ll be making two personal appearance at the Magpie Bookshop in Catskill in December. On Saturday 10th 3pm I’ll be reading from and signing copies of Dharma Delight, and on Tuesday 13th 10am I’ll lead an introduction to Zen meditation. Both events are free.

More info on Dharma Delight on my website here, reviews and signed copies here.

The introduction to Zen meditation will be for beginner and experienced meditators alike. I plan to talk briefly about the “four legs” of Zen meditation as I have set out in Dharma Delight:

• Posture – Sitting in the style of Buddhas’ past and present.
• Breath – Counting the breath as the most basic act of existence.
• Thoughts – Looking at thoughts dispassionatley as a bodily function.
• Community – Sitting together in supportive groups.

After the introduction I plan to includes a 25 minute silent meditation period, followed by a discussion. Maybe 1 hour total event time.

Magpie Bookshop is a fantastic used bookshop at 392 Main Street it Catskill NY. Cozy with a great selection of used books, the shop has become a hub for local writers, artists and musicians to meet.
