During the 2021 Practice Period (September 18 – November 20), we will be reading The Platform Sutra, a seminal text for Zen and for the Sinicization of Buddhism. We will primarily use Red Pine’s great translation of this text. As always, we will contemplate and discuss the text for its direct relevance to our practice, as we try to live the Dharma in the contemporary world of Everyday Zen.
The seminar runs from 7-9 pm, starting with half an hour of zazen. To receive word of the dates and topics of upcoming seminars, please subscribe to the Everyday Zen News & Events mailing list.
On Zoom: $40 for the monthly series ($10 per session) or whatever you are comfortable contributing.
In-person: $100 for the monthly series ($25 per session)
