Henry Shukman - Original Love Meditation

“We are learning to love, tend and cherish our experience, whatever it may be. This is a beautiful thing to be developing.”

Original Love is a new approach to the ancient path of meditation. It is a broad meditation training based primarily on traditional teachings of Zen and Early Buddhism.

Through finding the intrinsic lovingness, energy, peace and joy that are always already within us, even if they sometimes feel hidden, we can grow as more clear-sighted and open-hearted beings. Gradually, and sometimes suddenly, through shared practice, we start to catch glimpses of the “original love” that is always here.

While this program can serve for many as a complete training in itself, it can also serve as an on-ramp for Zen koan training.

We warmly invite you to watch Henry’s 4-part video series on the four essential “zones” of meditation.
