8500 NE Siskiyou St

Wednesday night classes focus on Buddhist teaching, from its early stages in India through its expression in Soto Zen. This annual class explores topics such as the Buddha’s life, the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path, Karma and Rebirth, Dependent Origination, the Paramitas and other aspirational practices, as well as contributions from some of our important Zen ancestors, including Dogen. Shin’yu and Daigai will be teaching these classes. The Foundational Teachings classes are a seminary requirement and prerequisite for many other seminary classes.

All Wednesday night classes are open to the public. There is no charge, though donations are gratefully accepted.

We meet on this schedule:
7-7:10pm Evening Service
7:10-7:40 Zazen
7:40-7:50 Break, Tea
7:50~8:50 Class
8:50-9 Vespers

This class is NOT available on Zoom, though it is usually recorded (audio only). Recordings of classes and Dharma Talks are available on the website.
