The Precepts: Intensive Study

2024 Sessions:
3/17
4/21
5/5
6/2

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:

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

  • 90 minutes real-time sessions – once a month with faculty
  • Individual monthly meetings with a Hollow Bones Zen priest mentor
