Dokusan is Buddhist spiritual guidance for inquirers of Buddhist prospective related to their spiritual practice. Inquirers bring their questions about meditation, lay practice, Buddhist philosophy and concerns to the Teacher. The Teacher does not provide ways to ease everyday life; the Teacher points the way to liberation.
Like all Buddhist programs and Services, Dokusan is offered on a Dana basis. In deciding on how much to give, it might be helpful to know that it costs $75/hour for the Teacher and Sangha to offer the teachings to you.
As of June 1, 2020 – we are dropping the price of Dokusan back to $60 during the pandemic.
You may send your Dana/Donation for your Dokusan to the following address:
