The Practice of Everyday Life with Karen Maezen Miller
September 16–18, 2011
To those of us with jobs, families, relationships and a million other things standing in our way, cultivating a spiritual practice can be the last item on a long list of things to do. We might never make it to a mountaintop monastery, so how do we balance our deeper aspirations with the demands of work and home? Does one preclude the other? During this program, we will redefine spirituality, and rediscover the clarity and compassion we think we have lost. Using simple mindfulness practices grounded in classical Zen wisdom, we will reawaken our faith and love in everyday life.
Karen Maezen Miller is a Zen priest and sensei at the Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles, California. She is the author of Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life and Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood. As a wife and parent, she offers practical, personal and meaningful teachings to people of all ages.
