Beskrivelse

This is Zen Master Hyon Gak Sunim's
17th visit to Norway.

He says: "Zen is not a doctrine or a dogma or philosophy or even a 'teaching.' It is merely a collection of meditation technologies which point us back to Moment, which -- itself -- is actually already our True Nature, true Self, Soul, consciousness, whatever we want to call it."

Our world sometimes seems to be consumed with ever-increasing waves of conflict. From the emerging civil war in the US to the brutal invasion of Ukraine, the standoff between China and Taiwan (and many more in between), there seems to be this constant state of strife. And not only geopolitically: Our daily existence seems to be a struggle -- against inflationary prices, a never-ending pandemic, and our fears over the climate crisis. What helps us not to lose our very minds, amidst all of this?
In this evening talk, Sunim explores how we might transmute these opposing energies into something that might actually save ourselves, and our world. The word for this message is "Zen": the infinite serenity of true reality -- right here, right now.
Come join us for this unique talk and bring any question you might have.
