Getting out of Your Own Way: Viewing Meditation as a Direct Expression of Your True Nature
The Interdependence Project NYC
302 BoweryNew York 10012
Wed, 6/20/2012, 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Every other aspect of nature is very clear on what to do, yet we humans tend to stumble and worry and regret and second-guess ourselves. Living this way leads to a lot of suffering and complications. What does it mean to directly express your true nature and to return to your originally clear mind?
Join Zen monk and IDP teacher Lawrence Grecco to explore how we can better know ourselves in order to get over ourselves and lead a life of sanity and ease.

He received authorization as a dharma teacher from the Interdependence Project, and holds a certificate in Foundations in Buddhist Chaplaincy from the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care. Ven. Lawrence was ordained by the Five Mountain Zen Order and is a student of Ven. Paul Yuánzhì Lynch, the Founder and Guiding Teacher of Five Mountain. He is also the Vice-Abbot of the Five Mountain Zen Order and writes for Sweeping Zen, The Interdependence Project, and Open Sky Zen.
