The zendo will be having another study group, starting 06 Jan, and going through every Thursday until 03 Feb. This one will be oriented for especially for those newer to practice, but having said that, anyone can learn something new.

Daigaku will be discussing Sekkei Harada Roshi’s The Essence of Zen, which he translated and edited.

In true Zen fashion, this book is considered both approachable for the beginner and at the same time, with difficult enough and with enough depth to satisfy the experienced practitioner.

Harada Roshi was Daigaku’s teacher, so it is especially fortunate to have his long-time student and translator to facilitate the study group.

Sessions last from 7:00-8:30 PM with 30 minutes of zazen.

There is a suggested donation of $40 for non-members and $20 for members.

To sign up for the study group or if you have any questions, you may call 314.669.4465 or email at
