Zachary and I are back in-person for our Monday lunchtime meditation sessions; you can find us on the Embarcadero, on the grass between the Cupid’s Bow sculpture and the restaurants (right about where Folsom meets the Embarcadero). The sit runs from 12:30 – 1:30, but you are welcome to drop in any time, for as long as you feel able to. A Zoom link is still available if you can’t make it in person, and if it is wet, since our pre-pandemic rainy day location is not open, we will just be on Zoom. Please see the Meetup page for details.
Zachary, Catherine and I will be co-leading a new Dogen Study group starting Monday May 9th. Please see this page for details. You don’t have to be a Dogen expert to enjoy the conversation.
On Wednesdays at noon PST, I offer a weekly half-hour meditation through Within.
Roaming continues on May 29th, June 11th and 26th, July 9th and August 14th. Please see the Roaming Zen page for details.
I am scheduled for a long-awaited return to Wilbur, where I lead several meditations over a weekend. The dates are currently June 17th – 19th, and I hope there will be more coming.
Fingers crossed I will make it to England in July. So far the teaching dates confirmed are at Hebden Bridge: an evening with Suzuki Roshi on Friday 29th, 7:30 – 9:00pm, and a sitting on Saturday 30th 9:00am – 4:30pm. Look for other events soon.
Abbot Ed and I will be reprising our Awakening the Archive class showcasing some of Suzuki Roshi’s talks on the four Saturday mornings in August for San Francisco Zen Center. Stay tuned for more details.
I will also be leading a three-week class on Dogen’s Tenzo Kyokun for Zen Center starting in October.
