Dai Bai Zan Cho Bo Zen Ji -- Zen Buddhist Temple

"Great Plum Mountain - Listening to the Dharma Zen Temple." -- www.choboji.org

A Seattle Zen temple in the Rinzai dharma line.

[01/11/17]   Soul Collage Workshop
Saturday, January 14
9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

You are probably familiar with being surprised at something you have unexpectedly said or done. Whether it's a wise and articulate flow of words or a disappointingly unkind action, different selves seem to be acting at different times. Indeed, we are not one self, but many. In SoulCollage, participants use images from magazines and other media to assemble small collages to discover these "sub-personalities." That which supports and sustains is illuminated, that which blocks or undermines is seen more clearly. Through this work, one can bring conflicting voices into dialogue, learn to access deeper wisdom, find kindness and compassion for all parts of oneself, and experience new approaches to overcoming self-created obstacles to happiness.

Anne Senryu Pechnovnik and Rinzan Pechovnik will join us from Portland to facilitate this workshop. Both are Zen practitioners and long-time friends of Chobo-Ji; Rev. Rinzan is a priest who trains here.

No art experience is necessary, and all materials will be provided. The event is free; donations will support Chobo-Ji. Please preregister, though, so adequate supplies can be provided: send your name to contact@pathfishstudio.com.

Snow blizzard SHOUTS winter's approach.

In the dead of night arises ancient compassion.

Who hears the falling rain?

The Mysterious Way abounds, as the train horn echoes
over Salish lands.
