Additional Notes:

  • Zen Noting is an example of a practice that has two different blanks to fill in, the first one is the Subject Blank (As ______) and the 2nd one is the Object Blank (______). The Subject blank is filled in with what we're identifying as, and the Object blank is filled in by what we're noticing.
  • This practice is itself an inspirational mash-up of the Voice Dialogue method, especially as its taught by Diane "Musho" Hamilton, and Kenneth Folk's Social Noting approach, specifically with the I Am Noting method. This is a uniquely Zen-Vipassana hybrid practice.
