Zen Lifestyles Class

Zen Lifestyles is an interactive, group process experience that involves learning about, and practicing the basic principles of relaxed thinking, mindful attention, emotional vibrancy, behavioral flexibility, soulful creativity, and spiritual harmony and peace. This class includes meditation, spontaneous movement and dance, free-form art and writing, open-ended conversation and narration….and lots of laughter, fun, and joyous relationship-building between participants.  Although the “theory” evolved from early Japanese Buddhism, Chinese Taoism, and Christian Mysticism….this class is non-religious in nature….and focuses on fundamental dynamics of compassion, freedom, creativity, happiness, community-building, and love.
