Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Building Bridges: A World Religions Program for 8th-9th Grades

Spiritual Preparation

This workshop is both serious and playful. Ready yourself for the flexibility to move from enjoyment of the humor to a serious discussion of topics that incorporate humor.

Read "The Man and the Tiger" as well as other Zen texts, such as one of the many koans (teaching stories) posted on the Zen Koans website. Stay open to the absurdity. It is said that the most outrageous koans make complete sense only to those who have attained enlightenment.
