In December, Dharma Seminar continues meeting 5:00 – 7:00 pm (PT) both face-to-face at the Community Congregational Church in Tiburon and on Zoom.
We will continue studying Cultivating the Empty Field: The Silent Illumination of Zen Master Hongzhi, translated by Taigen Dan Leighton and Yi Wu.
Hongzhi was an important Song Dynasty Zen Master who is credited with first articulating the practice of ‘just sitting,’ which is Dogen’s practice, and ours. His writing are suggestive, poetic, and beautiful.
We meet December 7, 14, and 21. Our December 14 meeting will be a special online-only gathering for poetry readings by Norman and John High. On December 28 and Jan 4 we will take a break for the winter holidays.
Here is the schedule:
Dec 14: Online (only): POETRY NIGHT! Readings by Norman & John High
Dec 21: Jaune Evans
Dec 28 & Jan 4: Winter Recess
