In-person or Online Participation
January 20-April 13, 2024
The 3-month Everyday Zen Practice Period is an opportunity to come together with other Sangha members and deepen your practice with an individually designed schedule supported by a variety of Dharma teachings and peer-to-peer Sangha dialogue. (The 3-month timeframe reaches all the way back to the rainy season retreats during the historical Buddha’s time.)
The 2024 Practice Period is led by Zenki Roshi, BZC’s Guiding Teacher, and members of the Practice Council. This year’s emphasis is on the study of the Genjo Koan, Dogen’s seminal essay on the "Koan of Everyday Life."
As a participant, you design and commit to a schedule that works within your daily life based on a minimum participation requirement as spelled out below. Click here for guidance and ideas on how to invigorate and expand your daily practice.
