Senior students from the Monterey Bay Zen Center teach a four-part class in Soto Zen meditation using the text from Fukanzazengi by Dogen Zenji as a touchstone. Participants will learn "the backward step that turns the light inward to illuminate the Self" (Zenji) through talks, discussion and meditation sessions. Classes are Jan. 19 and 26, and Feb. 2 and 9. At $10 a class, this search for inner peace sounds more like a step forward. Reservations suggested.
