In November, Dharma Seminar returns to a hybrid format, gathering face-to-face at the Community Congregational Church in Tiburon and on Zoom.
We are continuing to meet from 5:00 – 7:00 pm (PT).
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 will meet November 2, 9, and 16. November 23 will be Thanksgiving break. November 30, during seminar time, we will have a priest ordination for Anlor Davin and Jane Flint at the Church.
Here is the schedule:
Nov 9 – Kathie Fischer
Nov 16 – Norman
Nov 23 – Thanksgiving Recess
Nov 30 – Priest ordination for Anlor Davin and Jane Flint in place of seminar
