Text: The Bodhisattva’s Four Methods of Guidance by Zen Master Dogen.

During the ango retreat period in the city, the Village Zendo will hold council circles on the study text “The Bodhisattva’s Four Methods of Guidance” by Dogen. Instead of the usual dharma talk format, the leader will use the text as a point of departure and invite council participants to share whatever issues are coming up for them around the topic.

Summer Ango provides the opportunity to get off the fast track, slow down, and breathe. It’s a chance to do an intensive retreat, live in community and study closely with Roshi Enkyo O’Hara and the Village Zendo teachers, all in the green surroundings of the Hudson Valley.
