Dharma Discussion

Jōshin Ongoing Group | Program

Dharma Discussion

Thursday evenings, 7:00–8:15pm

We are currently reading and discussing Tim Burkett’s book, Nothing Holy About It. All are welcome to join in, and there is no need to read the book beforehand. We begin promptly at 7pm with a 15-min sit.

This group evolved out of the Buddhist Book group and has been meeting weekly to promote engaged practice and Dharma discussion within a number of different venues: we have studied materials on mindfulness practice & koans, have held kitchen-practice sessions with shared meals, held movie and discussion nights, and have participated in Conversation Cafes with the larger sangha. Our main interest is in collaborative engagement and discussion of our individual and shared practice in a warm, friendly and contemplative atmosphere.

Although there is no charge for participating, please consider contributing a small donation to the Austin Zen Center for use of the space.
