Beloved Buddhist teacher, poet and author Norman Fischer will speak at Banyen on the themes of his new book The World Could Be Otherwise: Imagination and the Bodhisattva Path.
https://banyen.com/events/fischer-2019

In frightening times, we wish the world could be otherwise. With a touch of imagination, it can be. Imagination helps us see what’s hidden, and it shape-shifts reality’s roiling twisting waves. The World Could Be Otherwise offers an imaginative approach to spiritual practice in difficult times, through the Buddhist teaching of the six paramitas or «perfections»--qualities that lead to kindness, wisdom, and an awakened life. Ranging from our everyday concerns about relationships, ethics, and consumption to our artistic inspirations and broadest human yearnings, Norman Fischer depicts imaginative spiritual practice as a necessary resource for our troubled times.

Norman Fischer is a Zen priest, teacher, poet, former abbot of San Francisco Zen Center, and founder of The Everyday Zen Foundation, an organization created to broaden the reach of engaged Buddhist practice. His numerous books include What Is Zen? Plain Talk for a Beginner’s Mind, Training in Compassion: Zen Teachings on the Practice of Lojong, and Opening to You: Zen-Inspired Translations of the Psalms.
