Dharma Weekends with Zenki Roshi in Boulder and Crested Butte

Boulder Dharma Weekends

The monthly Dharma Weekends have become a stable part of the Boulder Zen Center programs. They combine four elements that can be attended separately or together:

  1. Dharma Talk (Saturdays, 9 am-12 pm). After one period of Zazen, Zenki Roshi will give the regularly scheduled Saturday Dharma Talk. There will be a break, followed by an optional question and answer session.
  2. Everyday Zen Dialogue (Saturdays, 2-4 pm, open to anyone). Each month, a member of the group “hosts” the dialogue by presenting a practice topic that is alive in their practice. After an opening circle, in which each person responds to the topic, we engage in open conversation, then close with another circle.
  3. Extended Zazen and Dokusan (Sundays, 9 am-12:10 pm). There will be four periods of Zazen, interspersed with Kinhin, beginning at 9 am. Dokusan (personal interview with Zenki Roshi) will be open to anyone who would like to participate. Practitioners may join one or two Zazen periods, or for all four periods.
  4. Dharma Circle (Sundays, 2-4 pm). This is a study group for committed practitioners. Click here for the requirements for participation. The Dharma Circle will focus on a practice-oriented exploration of Dogen’s fascicle “Uji – Being-Time.”
