For a number of years, the workshops and symposia at the Upaya Zen Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico, have taught me so much about mindfulness, learning to quiet my mind and be more constructive. I learned to meditate there.
Now, the Center is offering an online symposium that looks to be of great value. It’s called the VARELA INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM: Exploring the Great Landscape of Awareness–Insights from Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Buddhism (2020) – Upaya Zen Center.
During this dangerous and stressful time, I highly recommend joining this one if you are able. These teachers are among the best. Roshi Joan Halifax, the Abbott of Upaya is a treasured friend.
