You Are Still Here: Zen Teachings of Kyogen Carlson

Kyogen was one of Domyo’s teachers, and this rich volume contains the core teachings of our particular Soto Zen lineage (click here for the story of our lineage). Please join us for this exploration.

Note that we will not be reading every chapter of the book, so check here for what chapter we will be discussing in a given week. It is beneficial to read the text ahead of time, but not necessary.
