Introduction to Naikan

The Calgary Buddhist Temple will be holding an Introduction to Naikan as a means for self-reflection led by our own Rev. Robert Gubenco. Wednesday, June 9 is Day 1, and Day 2 is a follow-up session on Wednesday, June 30. Start time for both is 7pm MST.

The Japanese word nai means inner or inside and the word kan means looking. When these two words are combined Naikan translates as inside looking which refers to looking within as a means of self-reflection. Naikan uses three simple yet structured questions for the purpose of self-reflection. The questions are designed to remove one’s personal feelings and to bring one’s attention or awareness to the reality of the give and take connection that exists in relationships.
