The Precepts: Intensive Study 2023

Precepts are sets of injunctions, guideposts or standards of conduct that practitioners of Zen seek to live by.  As part of the Jukai Ceremony and the Ordination Ceremony to become a Hollow Bones Priest, committing to live by the precepts provides a guide to the Hollow Bones dharma teachings in daily life.  Familiarizing oneself with these commitments through daily intention and practice is a necessary step in deepening ones path of awakening beyond zazen and Mondo Zen Facilitation.

The structure of this training is richly textured to support inter-subjective learning. The training includes:

  • 12 weekly practice modules. Work with one precept each week through video lectures, readings, online discussion and embodied practice.

  • 4 – 90 minutes real-time sessions – once a month with faculty  (3/26, 4/30, 5/21, 6/11)
  • Individual monthly meetings with a Hollow Bones Zen priest mentor

The next course will be offered March 26 – June 11, 12:00 – 1:30 EST
