To study the self is to forget the self...

This practice period Dragons Leap will study Eihei Dogen's Genjo Koan [Actualization of Reality]. It is one of the groundwork texts of Soto Zen Buddhism and the first chapter of The Shobogenzo. Dairyu Michael Wenger will lead the weekly classes exploring this important text.

To support your studies, the following books are recommended:

  • Realizing Genjokoan by Shohaku Okamura

  • Dogen's Genjo Koan Three Commentaries

Classes are offered each Sunday from 5:00-6:15pm, October 6 through December 1.

Other important dates include:

  • One Day Sit: October 6, 9am - 5pm
