"May we always have the courage to bear witness, to see ourselves as other and to see other as ourself." -Bernie Glassman. On our way to the children's barrack, block 16, in Auschwitz-Birkenau on the Zen Peacemakers Bearing Witness Retreat 2015 #auschwitz #bearingwitness #zenpeacemakers #zenpeacemakersorder

One of the great pioneers of Zen in America, Bernie Glassman, suffered a stroke this week. We are wishing him well as he turns 77. #zenpeacemakers #zenpeacemakersorder #bernieglassman (photo 2010)

Picture perfect Saturday morning in May at Great Plains Zen Center. Set right again, at least for a few minutes/seconds/ok maybe a split second. The children sat still on their #zafus for 40 minutes. Just kidding. #whiteplumsangha #Zazen #prairiezen #zenpeacemakers #notchurch #notmindfulness #mu #gatelessgate #whoareyou #whatisthis #justthis #lovingkindness #threetreasures #getreal

"Make your heart a zone of peace" Jack Kornfield. Peace is a verb, we make peace in our hearts, in the world breath by breath. We make whole. We use what we have. Is the task overwhelming? Yes! And that's why we come back moment by moment. How can I be peace in this situation? How can I make peace with these circumstances, with these ingredients? ☮️💟 #peace #peacemaking #heart #zoneofpeace #zenpeacemakers #meditation #mindfulness #jackkornfield #spiritrock #zazen #notknowing #bearingwitness #lovingaction #pakehallmindfulnessochyoga

🌝Full moon day - a day of reflection, how do I live my life? Meditating on the precepts. Doing the Gate of Sweet Nectar ceremony, inviting all hungry ghosts into this mandala ☸️
Calling out to hungry hearts
Everywhere through endless time
You who wander, you who thirst
I offer you this bodhi mind.
Calling out to hungry spirits
Everywhere through endless time
Calling out to hungry hearts
All the lost and left behind
Gather round and share this meal
Your joy and your sorrow
I make it mine. 🙏🙏🙏 #fullmon #fullmoonday #dayofreflection #thegateofsweetnectar #hungryghosts #zenpeacemakers #zenpeacemakersorder #meditation #precepts #bodhisattvaprecepts #peacemakerprecepts

It's an odd world- put on a clown's nose and even the odds! Order of Disorder to your service.

Being odd by being uneven
Irreverence

Motto:
DON’T BE HERE NOW!
FOUR VOWS
Creations are numberless, I vow to count them.

"Oh, that my priest's robe were
Wide enough
To gather up all the suffering
People
In this floating world" -Ryokan
Every morning I put my rakusu on my head and say the Kesa verse:
"Wounderous is the robe of liberation,
A treasure beyond form and emptiness.
Wearing it I will unfold Buddha's teaching
For the benefit of all sentient beings."
To me this is among other things a deep reminder of Sangha - and the need to practice Sangha, not just to belong to a Sangha. The rakusu is a piece of cloth that represent the Buddha's robe and the wearer of it is thus a follower of and practitioner of the Way.
Ryokan's words put it to the matter of the heart - to practice the Way we try to gather up all the suffering beings in this very robe. Moment by moment, breath by breath. We dive into Not-Knowing, Bear Witness to the joy and suffering of the world, of the world as it is - and take loving action. To take loving action is also to practice Sangha... Leaving no one outside.

A text about our Interfaith Bearing Witness Pilgrimage in the summer of 2015 is now out on www.zenpeacemakers.org We wanted to Bear Witness to how War is present in seemingly peaceful Sweden by meeting people involved in arms trade, UN veteran soldiers, refugees, peace activists and let the meetings with others be the teacher. Please read the report on Zen Peacemaker's webpage under Blog. #bearingwitness #zenpeacemakers #zenpeacemakersorder #refugees #veterans #ptsd #war #peace #bofors #notknowing #takingaction #pilgrimage #interfaith #engagedbuddhism #sociallyengagedbuddhism #engagedspirituality

To listen as meditation, letting go, just listening... something we practice in the MBSR-/Mindful Self-Compassion-courses and in Council Circle practice. Not easy, very rewarding 🙏🙏🙏 #justlistening #listeningasmeditation #councilcircle #mbsr #msc #meditation #mindulness #compassion #selfcompassion #självmedkänsla #mindfulselfcompassion #zenpeacemakers #zpo #göteborg #pakehallmindfulnessochyoga
