Starting Aug 30, we will begin a series of seminars studying Dōgen on the environment: a chance for us to be mindful about our mother earth and her challenges.
Our text will be Dōgen’s “Keisei Sanshoku” (“Valley Sounds, Mountain Colors”) from the Shobogenzo (fascicle 10 in the Kaz Tanahashi edition).
Note: In September, we begin a new routine for dharma seminar. The last meeting every month will be hybrid. Otherwise, seminar will be held online in Zoom, only, with no in-person meeting.
So, Aug 30 is hybrid; Sept 6,13,20 will be online only; and Sept 27 will be hybrid. We will continue this pattern indefinitely, with the last Wednesday of the month hybrid and all other weeks online only.
