Notes and Events:

Contact:P.O. Box 2368  Santa Fe  NM 87504
Awakened Life is a re-imagining of the Zen koan tradition that is rooted in its original values: life as a process of awakening; meditation, inquiry, imagination, and relationship as ways to discover and deepen that awakening; and creativity and caring for our world as the natural expression of awakening. We believe that buddha nature is everywhere, and so we value the art and the metaphors, the myths and the landscapes of this time and place. Awakened Life is a constantly evolving field of practice, shaped by the experiences of people right here and now. Enlightenment as a conspiracy of friends.
The Awakened Life programs and community are in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where founding teacher Joan Sutherland lives. Awakened Life forms the center of The Open Source, a network of practice communities and individuals in the western United States committed to co-creation, life in this world, and awakening together.

Spiritual Director: Hwasun Yangil Sunim  (Phone: 647-342-3322)
Notes and Events:

Zen Meditation instruction offered at Awakened Meditation Centre by Zen Master Hwasun Yangil is intended for both beginners and advanced students alike.

Participants are offered a rare opportunity to enrich their inner life and practice under the guidance of an experienced Zen Master.

Instruction is provided in sitting meditation posture, breathing techniques, walking meditation, and Ko-an meditation, to concentrate and awaken the mind.

According to Zen tradition, at a gathering of his disciples Shakyamuni Buddha probed the understanding of his followers about the ultimate goal of His teaching by holding a flower aloft before the assembly. Among the thousand assembled there, only Mahakasyapa is said to have understood the gesture and acknowledged it with a smile. Thereupon, the Enlightened One acknowledged the transmission of the right Dharma eye, the blissful mind of Nirvana and the ultimate reality to the Venerable Mahakasyapa.

The transmission is outside of the scriptures. It aims at the direct pointing at the mind for the perception of self-nature and attainment of enlightenment.

The Zen teaching traces its origin from this transmission. It remains a living tradition, passed on from master to disciple.

From the great traditions of Asia, Zen has found a new home in the hearts of many in North America and Europe.

Zen opens a whole world of possibilities for improving and appreciating ones day-to-day life through mindfulness and awareness of the moment.

Notes and Events:

Belmont Buddhist Community (BBC) is a lay-led, non-sectarian Buddhist organization serving followers of the Buddhadharma in Belmont County, Ohio and surrounding communities

The mission of the group is to:

  • Come together for meditation practice
  • Provide mutual support in the study of Buddhism
  • Cooperate in traveling to retreats outside the local area

BBC is lay-led by necessity, while recognizing the value of contact with a teacher and encouraging its members to take advantage of opportunities to work with teachers at retreats and other venues.

BBC is non-sectarian by choice, recognizing and striving to learn from the wisdom of all Buddhist traditions and lineages, but at the same time resisting the temptation of cafeteria Buddhism — picking and choosing the superficial and easy aspect of a tradition but resisting the deep and effortful aspects that are necessary for spiritual growth.

The goal of Belmont Buddhist Community is to encourage spiritual growth and development on the Buddha’s path in its members, for their own benefit and for the benefit of all sentient beings.
