Every Wednesday evening, as well as during sesshin meditation retreats, there is a Dharma talk by one of the Santa Cruz Zen Center teachers, or visiting teacher, on various themes of Zen
practice and understanding. This includes time for asking questions, and is followed on Wednesday evenings by an informal tea, where discussion can continue.
Classes and Study
There are Sunday evening class series offered several times a year to explore different classical Buddhist and Zen teachings, and
how to apply them to our daily practice. The library has a large collection of Dharma books that can be checked out by members.
