Zen Poets and the Three Truths: A workshop at Village Zendo
|September 28, 2013|
|10:00 am||to||1:00 pm|
New York City
With Hoshi Deirdre Eisho Peterson
In this workshop, we will read some of the most beloved Zen poets of 17th- to 19th-century Japan, including Basho, Issa, Rengetsu, and Ryokan. We’ll look at their verse, as well as prose-and-haiku writings, such as Basho’s “Narrow Road to the Interior” and Issa’s “The Spring of My Life.” We will examine how these poets expressed the Three Truths of impermanence, suffering, and interconnection. We will read poems aloud together, as well as write some of our own.
Fee: $30 members, $35 nonmembers. Preregistration is required.
Village Zendo, 588 Broadway, Suite 1108, New York, NY
