Dharma Study Workshop

Responses to the recent SZC member survey indicated that there was an appetite amongst the sangha for more dharma study. In response to this, Allan Marett is happy to offer dharma study workshops once a month on Saturday afternoons at our Annandale dojo. Over the last couple of years, he has successfully run monthly workshops of this type at his home in Ashfield, and will now extend these to the wider sangha. The initial focus of the workshops will be The Record of Linji. A description of this text, plus many useful resources can be found here.

The dates and times for dharma study workshops are:

Saturday 14 July –  1.00pm to 4.00pm

Saturday 11 August – 1.00pm to 4.00pm

— No Dharma Study in September —

Saturday 20 October 1.00pm to 4.00pm

Saturday 24 November – 1.00pm to 4.00pm

Please put these dates in your diary if you’re interested in attending.

Each month Allan will send out a reminder email asking you register your intention to attend. Registration is essential because the workshop will be cancelled if there are fewer than three takers.
