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. During COVID, we are dropping the suggested price of Dokusan to $60. If you cannot afford the suggested price you may pay what you are able.
All Dokusan appointments are held via Zoom.
