In this four-week class Norman will present material and thoughts from his recent book When You Greet Me I Bow: Notes and Reflections from a Life in Zen, a collection of thirty years of his Dharma essays, with contemporary reflections.

The essays cover topics such as What is a Zen teacher?, Racism and Buddhism, Politics and Religion, Women in Zen, and the Dialogic Nature of Zen practice. In this book, Norman presents a broad look at the Soto Zen Buddhist movement in the West; the challenges it has faced and the changes that have come about. The class will cover and offer these subjects for discussion.

Each class will include sitting practice, a presentation, and conversation.
