We offer a variety of Buddhist and Zen studies. Our curriculum year runs from September through May, with additional courses sometimes offered in the summer. Our classroom is wheelchair accessible.
Foundation and Advanced Courses
The prerequisite for advanced classes is completion of Dependent Arising and the Unlocatable Self, though we recommend a full year of foundation courses. Don’t be surprised to find students attending a foundation course for the second or third time. Subtle and profound, foundation teachings amplify practice and study, regardless of a student’s experience or understanding.
Nonmembers: $90; *members: $60. There is a $5 discount for seniors & students.
*members of Zen Centers whose guiding teacher is a Dharma descendent of Dainin Katagiri are eligible for the member discount.
Please note that registration is limited to the number of students our classroom will hold. Some classes fill early.
