Studies from Dogen’s Extensive Record (Eihei Koroku) with Hozan Alan Senauke

Hozan Alan Senauke will lead this year’s one-day study sesshin on Sunday, September 4, from 5:00 am to 5:30 pm. As the summer winds down, this day will provide a quiet and reflective respite. It will include zazen, oryoki meals for breakfast and lunch, soji, and two study and discussion sessions. Our study will be a selection from Dogen Zenji’s Eihei Koroku, drawn and collected from Dogen’s extensive later teaching. These are recorded talks and pithy commentary, part poetry, part performance, offered from the teaching seat in the Dharma Hall, similar in style to those of Chinese masters in the Tang and Sung dynasties.
Materials will be available on the bulletin board shelf in advance of the sesshin. The fee is $35, and should be paid in advance. Please leave payment marked “Study Sesshin” by Wednesday, August 31, in the donation slot. For more information, contact sesshin director Carol Paul: or (510) 206-5051. A sign-up sheet is posted on the bulletin board.
