Hybrid Hybrid Event

Led by Norman | Topic: Emily Dickinson

On May 17 and 24, Dharma Seminar will return to the poetry of Emily Dickinson, America’s deepest and most penetrating religious poet. A famous recluse barely known in her time, Dickinson explored the enigmas of intense spiritual  relationship. 

A  selection of her poems is linked to below. If you will be attending in person, please print the poems out at home and bring them to seminar with you. We will not be able to provide copies to everyone.

For those registered to attend online, the link will also be included in the confirmation and reminder emails. Please print the poems out or save them where you can easily find them and have them available to view during seminar.

About Dharma Seminar

The evening begins with a period of zazen followed by lecture and small and large group discussion. The topic of seminar typically centers on a classical text, sometimes with additional readings, and changes every month, for the most part. The emphasis is always on the application of the teachings to our daily lives. Students are asked to attend all meetings in a given month, if possible.

Attending at the Community Congregational Church in Tiburon

Please arrive early with time to settle in. Chairs are provided. If you prefer to sit on a zafu, please bring your own.

Attending Online

Once you have registered (see above), you will be sent a confirmation and also a reminder email with the Zoom login information each week 24 hours before the event begins. When a new month or topic begins, you will need to register again to receive the reminder emails.
