  • In Person and Zoom

Thursday Evening Practice

This is a hybrid event: in person at our Hospital Drive location, and also on Zoom at our regular Zoom link (click here). We begin at 7:30 and sit together for 40 minutes. After this Gareth will offer a talk about a segment of source material (e.g. a sutta/ sutra, or extract, or a practice text), then open up for questions, reflections and discussion.

This is open to all and no prior knowledge of the source texts - or even of Buddhism! - is required.

Schedule

We are currently (and for the foreseeable future) alternating two bodies of work in these talks, one with a heavy Zen basis, the other based on a Pali Canon text (the Therigatha) and a wide array of Chinese sources: 
  • Koans from the Mumonkan, using Shibayama's "Zen Comments on the Mumonkan" as the primary text (though it is by no means necessary to have a copy: Gareth will cover all the necessary material in the class)
  • Poems of awakening by Indian and Chinese women and nuns. The primary texts Gareth will be drawing from are "First Buddhist Women" by Susan Murcott and "Daughters of Emptiness" by Beata Grant. As for the Mumonkan sessions, there is no need to own or to have read the books; Gareth will cover all the necessary material.
Each talk will be self-contained and stand independently, so feel free to drop in occasionally and to not do so when you feel like it. Each of the series of talks will run for several months.
