Zen: Water drips from the faucet in rhythm. The water falls into the water in a bowl beneath the faucet. The giving and receiving is slow enough that each drop brings attention. Sometimes two drops come together. The plane flying above the house joins the rhythm of the water dripping into the bowl. A hawk calls out high notes. Not for long. Cars groan across paved roads. The rhythm of the water dripping continues. The silence remains.
Zen: An open source
Zen: A gateway to the heart
Whether you are walking, standing, sitting, or lying down the silence will speak without words. You may give it expression or not. It is your choice. — Zenju
Zenju Earthlyn Manuel will be limiting her appearances to one to two major events a year. She travels with an assistant/student so please consider this in your budget.
Her focus is writing, her own contemplative practice, and discovering more intimate ways of teaching. She invites you and your sangha or community to access information about Sensei’s creative and heartfelt offerings through her website zenju.org. She teaches freely on Facebook. Subscribe to the newsletter to keep informed with updates.
She is currently not in residence at San Francisco Zen Center and does not offer general practice discussions for SFZC students or those seeking to be students at SFZC.
In addition, she is currently not inviting new students in the traditional Zen student/teacher relationship. If your heart moves you to contact us anyway please do.
Finally, she is not available to give general counsel on life decisions or answer questions on Zen/Buddhist practice via email, or advice on developing manuscripts.
NOTE: Still Breathing Zen Sangha is no longer a center. It is a private sangha with Zenju’s current students.
