The Zen Studies Sangha

Zen Studies Sangha Member Dashboard

Welcome to your Zen Studies Sangha dashboard!

Please let me know if you have any questions:


Group Meetings with Domyo

Live Podcast Discussions: Join Domyo and other Zen Studies Podcast listeners for discussions of recent (or sometimes older) episodes. This is a great time for delving deeper into the Dharma, and getting to know Domyo and other practitioners. On the Online Opportunities Calendar, click the event listing with a time to see what episode we’ll be discussing. Please listen to/read the relevant episode ahead of time and bring comments and questions!

Live Meditation Sessions: We sit together four times a week (Wednesdays-Saturdays), on Zoom videoconference. Click here for a copy of the Chants we use after morning zazen sessions.

Our Zoom Meeting ID: 469•365•5898

Join a Practice Group

Join an intimate practice group of 4-6 members of either the Zen Studies Sangha or Bright Way Zen. Practice groups:

  • last from 3-6 months (or longer if the group wants it to),
  • meet once or twice a month (the group decides) using the Zen Studies Sangha Zoom online videoconference room (Zoom ID 363•474•3860), and
  • use Domyo’s Nine Fields of Zen Practice to structure their work together.

Click here to learn more about practice groups. Email Domyo if you’re interesting in joining and/or forming a practice group!

Member’s Online Community

Connect with other Zen Studies Sangha members on our private Mobilize community site. It’s kind of like Facebook, but just for us! You should have been invited when you became a member, and have a username (your email address) and password (one you chose, unless you sign on with Facebook or LinkedIn). The site includes member profiles, posting activity, and the option for private chats.

Member’s Email List: Our Mobilize community site will notify you about activity by email. If you want more emails or fewer, click on your profile image in Mobilize (upper right corner), then on Settings, the Email Settings. You can also just use this email address to correspond with other members instead of logging on to the Mobilize site: (Put that email in your contacts!)

One-on-one Interactions with Domyo

Schedule a 30-minute private one-on-one Dharma Interview (aka dokusan or sanzen) with Domyo as often as once a month, by Zoom videoconference (Domyo can give you instructions if you need them) or phone (or, of course, in person if you live in the Portland Oregon area).

Dharma Interview - Learn More

Dharma Interview is an opportunity to talk with a teacher one-on-one to discuss your Zen practice. You can ask questions about Buddhism and practice, but ideally this won’t be an intellectual exercise. Instead, it will be about the “edge” of your practice – what are you working on? What’s challenging you? How can you apply practice to your daily life?
