Writing to Study the Self

Dogen encouraged us to “study the self.” How might the practice of writing allow us to look deeply at our personality, karma, history, and social conditioning—a sustained engagement in this self study? Participants in this three-month course will be offered craft talks, prompts, and practices to look deeply at the self. Meets Sundays, 3-5pm ET, every other week (September 8, 22, October 6, 20, November 3, 17). With Chenxing Han, Jenny Xie, Norman Fischer, and Ruth Ozeki.
