Dogen Genzo-e at Clouds in Water Zen Center

September 07, 2018 - September 08, 2018

A Genzo-e is a special retreat to study the 13th century Zen teacher – Dogen Zenji.  In this retreat we will study “Zenki” “Total dynamic functioning”, a fascicle of the Shobogenzo.

What do we trust in?  Especially in Buddhism where there is no centralized God.  What does the 13th century renowned Zen Teacher, Dogen-Zenji, say about this?  In his major work, Shobogenzo, Dogen-Zenji writes about “Zenki”.  Zenki can be translated as “total dynamic functioning” or “the Whole Works.”  How can we realize our dynamic interdependence so we can let go and trust?  Let’s study together this constant energetic interconnection in the universe called “zenki” during this September Genzo-e.

There will be two talks a day, discussion and time for writing.
