Beginning February, 2023, Unshin Sangaku Dan Joslyn-Sensei, founder and guiding teacher of the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha, will offer two independent study courses limited to five students each:
Independent Study Course I: Five Central Teachings of Buddhism
Four Noble Truths
Noble Eightfold Path
Independent Study Course II: Wading In With Dogen
The Life of Eihei Dogen Zenji
Review of Three Selected Fascicles of Shobogenzo
The format is straight forward. If you wish to spend ten hours in direct 1:1 tutorial experience with Sensei, at times of your choosing, between February 1, 2024 and July 1, 2023, now you can.
THERE WILL BE AN ORIENTATION MEETING FOR STUDENTS TO BE ANNOUNCED IN EARLY FEBRUARY 7PM/ET: https://zoom.us/j/7096899032?status=success#success
The Password is FSZS:
Students will set their own schedule, be given assignments, discuss each teaching and major points, and ask as many questions as they wish. Once a month there is a one hour meeting (ZOOM) of students wishing group discussion with Sensei for each course. There will be Course summations as each student completes her/his study. There will be opportunities to develop a journal during the course, and if you wish, you may provide answers to written questions to be reviewed with Sensei. Those completing the course will receive a letter of recognition..
As this is a tailored individual independent study, each student, in consultation with Joslyn-sensei, will determine the pace of study, and may modify their schedule if her/his time options change. Donations are accepted. A suggested minimum is 10-15 dollar per hour with Sensei. All donations go to support the Falmouth Sangha programs and service operations. A portion of contributions will be donated to the Silent Thunder Order.
