Introduction to Dogen

Dogen’s writings are a lifetime study, and one introductory weekend isn’t nearly enough to prepare participants to study the Shobogenzo on their own.  However, in the videos below, Vice Abbot Hoko Karnegis introduces some of the basic elements of Dogen’s teaching. She provides a grounding in the major themes, the structure of his writing, and in the texts he found influential.  While this information is not a prerequisite for genzo-e participation, those aspiring to participate in such study may find it helpful.
