Tim Burkett with ​Busshō Lahn – Enlightenment Is an Accident

May 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


A warm-hearted guide to Buddhist practice for those ready to contend with the reality that enlightenment—the realization of non-self—can’t be achieved by the self. Tim Burkett’s new book, Enlightenment is an Accident, unhooks enlightenment from the hot air balloon of ego and brings it back down to earth. With the wisdom and humor of a seasoned practitioner familiar with all manner of eccentric fixations and silly dead-ends, he offers views and practices we can use to support the paradoxical process of letting enlightenment happen on its own.
Tim Burkett began practicing Zen Buddhism in San Francisco in 1964 with Shunryu Suzuki.
In conversation with Busshō Lahn- a Zen student and teacher, and the founder of Flying Cloud Zen Spiritual Practice Community.
