Dharma Seminar: March
March 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
Everyday Zen’s Dharma Seminar meets weekly on Wednesday evenings. The evening includes a period of Zazen followed by lecture and small and large group discussion. Our study is usually centered on a classical text, changing more or less each month; the emphasis is always on the application of the teachings to daily life. Norman leads seminar most weeks with senior teachers filling in when he is away. Students are encouraged to attend all seminar meetings in a given calendar month. To receive information on upcoming seminars, please subscribe to the Everyday Zen News & Events mailing list and watch for monthly emails near the start of each month.
