An evening w/ Dharma Teacher, Manu Bazzano

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE

ZEN: A GUIDE TO GETTING LOST

An evening of meditation and dharma talks with Manu Bazzano.

Zen practice is rooted in the cultivation of perplexity and wonder -- welcoming antidotes to our compulsion to know, measure and control experience. It encourages exploration and facilitate disorientation, so that we find genuine surprise and learning.
______________________

Manu Bazzano, born in Calabria, Italy, first encountered the Dharma in 1978 in the person of Lama Yeshe at the Lama Tzong Khapa Institute in Pomaia, Italy. Manu has studied and practised eastern meditation since 1980 and studied Zen within the White Plum Asangha (an international community founded by Zen Master Taizan Maezumi) between 1996 and 2006, being ordained into the Soto and Rinzai traditions of Japanese Zen in 2004.
Now Manu works as a therapist, meditation facilitator and supervisor, teaching at various colleges including Roehampton University and Metanoia Institute.
