Upaya Sangha of TucsonStudy Group
A Son (Zen) Retreat: “What is This?”
Is there something beyond or behind what we experience through our sense faculties? Is there something to be known that is other than what is seen, heard, sensed and cognized? Over the course of eight meetings, we’ll discuss Stephen Batchelor’s evocative presentations on the nature of emptiness. The conversations will be framed in the context of what is to be known, what is to be abandoned, what is to be realized, and what is to be practiced.
This course will engage those of you who have a solid grasp of the fundamentals of the Buddhadharma. Prior to our meetings, you will listen to the recorded sessions and work through a study guide.
Audio of the lectures will be provided to you on a disc.

It is important to the future of TCMC to observe mindful parking by not parking on the same block as the Center and by leaving an empty parking space in front of the homes on the neighboring blocks. Please reserve TCMC driveway parking for people who cannot walk far. Thank you!
