The Collective Body as Sangha: Zen and the Discipline of Authentic Movement, Online

November 12, 2022 | 9am – 12:30pm

with Paula Sager and Bonnie Morrissey

“I imagine the collective body as the energetic consciousness of the earthbody, which includes all living beings. It is the body-felt connectedness among people, profoundly related to the source of our humanity.” —Janet Adler

Paula Sager and Bonnie Morrissey, co-editors of Janet Adler’s new and collected writings, Intimacy in Emptiness: An Evolution of Embodied Consciousness, in dialogue with Janet Adler and SFZC’s Green Gulch Farm Abiding Abbess Furyu Nancy Schroeder.

Is individual embodied consciousness enough? How do we cultivate a conscious-enough collective body? How does sangha become fully embodied, manifesting on earth?

During the first half of our time together, Janet and Fu will join us for a discussion honoring the relationship between our two distinct and complementary practices—one nascent and one ancient—which considered together may bring fresh insight to our questions. During the second half, we will immerse online in an embodied awareness practice founded by Janet: the Discipline of Authentic Movement.
