Welcome to BZC may all beings realize their true nature

Aspects of Practice

This year’s Aspects of Practice period will take place from October 3 through November 13. We will be studying Dogen Zenji’s Gakudo Yojinshu (Guidelines for Studying the Way) in a series of Thursday evening classes. In these classes, as well as in our talks, lectures, sesshins, and other activities, we will bring Dogen’s teaching alive with our experience and our questions about practice inside and outside the gate.

As of this writing, all events will be virtual. Any updates will be posted.

Please plan on committing to coming to as many of the activities as you can—warming up your commitment to practice and supporting each other. Several BZC senior students will be teaching during this time, and we encourage you to meet with one or more of them at least twice to discuss your practice.

Please sign up at this link by September 27:  https://forms.gle/NiyPJXB1EHM92Z8X7.

Ross Blum, Gerry Oliva, and Ryushin Andrea Thach have been invited to organize this practice period, sharing the teaching seat with other Practice Leaders.
