Intro to Meditation 3-Part Series w/ Soto Zen Priest Shokuchi
Oct 7, 2019 - Apr 20, 2020

Yoga Union is excited to welcome for the first time Soto Zen priest Shokuchi for a methodical, accessible three-part introduction to meditation.

The benefits of meditation are undisputed, but finding a genuine, experienced teacher can be challenging. This is a perfect opportunity to begin--or refresh--your practice and develop it over time with a skillful, warm and compassionate teacher.

You will leave with tools to start your meditation practice the next day! Each session includes:
• teachings on meditation
• instruction in meditation practice
• periods of guided meditation
• discussion.

Shokuchi (Deirdre Carrigan) was ordained a Soto Zen priest in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, founder of San Francisco Zen Center in 2010, and has been teaching yoga since 1988. She met her teachers, Zen Master Tenshin Reb Anderson Roshi and Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher, Donald Moyer, in a Zen and Yoga retreat at Green Gulch Farm 35 years ago and has been practicing both Zen meditation and yoga since that time. She is currently Tanto (Head of Practice) at Brooklyn Zen Center and teaches yoga classes at 100 Smith in Brooklyn.
