One-on-one Interactions with Domyo

Schedule private a 30-minute one-on-one Dharma Interview (aka dokusan or sanzen) with me, your podcast host (Domyo), in-the-flesh or by video (Zoom or Skype). Appointments can be conveniently scheduled online (click here to see my availability listed according to your time zone).

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?

Maintain ongoing practice intentions or vows with my support and guidance, through Dharma Interview and/or email.

Please consider supporting me through sangha membership (see below) if you end up wanting to correspond or meet regularly. Thanks!

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’ll be invited if you sign up as a Zen Studies Sangha 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.
