February 2 workshop with Koun Franz (schedule to come)
February 3 dharma talk, 10:10 am
In Soto Zen, we name our two founders as Dogen and Keizan, but most of us have little or no encounter with Keizan's teachings. This one-day workshop with Koun Franz will emphasize practice-based discussion of Keizan's Zazen Yojinki ("Notes on What to Be Aware of in Zazen") and how it applies not only to zazen but to our entire understanding of the practice.
You are welcome to stay overnight at Sanshin and attend our usual Sunday morning practice, which will include Koun's dharma talk, before departing for home.
Koun Franz was born in Helena, Montana, but has spent a good deal of his adult life in Japan. He was ordained in 2001, then trained at Zuioji and Shogoji monasteries. From 2006 to 2010, he served as resident priest of the Anchorage Zen Community in Alaska. Koun and his family now live in Canada (Halifax, Nova Scotia), where he leads practice at Zen Nova Scotia.
