Both Seminary and Dharma Studies students may register for Part 1 core classes. To take a Part 2 seminary class, you must be enrolled in the Seminary Program.

Classes Currently Open for Registration

Daily Liturgy This class is open to those who have completed the five core seminary classes, or who enrolled in seminary in 2017 or earlier.

  Daily Liturgy is a challenging cohort based independent study opportunity meeting three Tuesday evenings. Material has formerly required nine full class meetings. Although students may expect to build on other seminary studies that explore the liturgy from a historical or philosophical perspective, this class will emphasize liturgy as practice and expression.  Individual study inclinations will be added to a common exploration of the main Soto school scriptures that are chanted regularly at Dharma Rain.  Assignments will include readings, class presentations, 2 papers, and a copying project.

Registration Deadline March 31.
