Dokusan is a one-to-one teaching encounter in private given at this center by a fully authorized Zen teacher — either Roshi Bodhin Kjolhede or Sensei John Pulleyn.  It is open to those who have become members of the Center. Dokusan is geared to matters of practice in the narrow sense of the word (e.g., zazen), but personal issues closely related to one’s sitting practice are also okay to bring up.

Saturday-morning dokusan was instituted years ago to accommodate members who can’t make it to the regular dokusans held during the week. To attend, take a seat on the left side of the Arnold Park zendo, near the Kannon Room, any time before 10:00 am (Eastern). An announcement will be made before dokusan begins.
