June 7-11, 2015 (Sunday-Thursday)

A study week at Tassajara is a wonderful opportunity to explore Zen teachings, meditation, and work practice under the guidance of a teacher. In the morning, participants join the residential community for the morning meditation program, breakfast, work practice and lunch. Afternoons and evenings include study sessions, lectures, opportunities to meet with the teacher individually, and ample personal time to enjoy the baths, creek and hiking trails, to rest and renew. Dinner is in the guest dining room.

We will study Suzuki Roshi’s commentary on the Sandokai, or The Harmony of Difference and Equality, a poem by Sekito Kisen, which points us to the source of our own wisdom while acknowledging the value of study and the importance of cultivating relationships with teachers. Suzuki Roshi’s words foster a perspective on our human lives in the context of our relationship to all things, past, present and future. These teachings can help us live in harmony with one another while recognizing our differences.

The rate for Study Week is $70 per person, per day for shared guest accommodations. If you are traveling with a companion, private rooms are available for two. Spaces are limited; please call Reservations at (888) 743-9362 to register.
