What is the nature of experience? Before thinking arises—before the detour into a world of stories, ideas and expert opinions—this is where the teachings of the awakened point us back to: to this ever-new reality.
Beginner's mind, shoshin, is an ancient teaching that reveals this understanding of unhindered experience, which may initially seem locked away in mystery. It is a journey that leads right back to what is familiar and first-hand. Beginner's Mind describes a way of openness, of finding what is genuine and real.
Shunryu Suzuki, Cold Mountain (Hanshan), Walt Whitman, Dogen and Tozan Ryokai will be among our guides in exploring shoshin.
