Bay Area Dharma Seminars

The Dharma Seminars are an intimate way for Bay Area students to study and practice together. The evening includes a period of Zazen followed by study and small and large group discussion generally centered on a classical text. Our emphasis is always on the application of the teachings to daily life, and there are often practices assigned through the week.

Norman leads the seminar most weeks with senior teachers filling in when he is away.

Students are asked to commit to attending all meetings in the calendar month. Suggested donation is $100 per month.

The seminars are held at the Community Congregational Church in Tiburon.
