Led by New York Zen Center’s Guiding Teacher: Koshin Paley Ellison


with Joan Amaral, Chimyo Atkinson, Chodo Campbell, Norman Fischer, Dai En Friedman, Issho Fujita, Konjin Godwin, Ryushin Paul Haller, Genyu Kojima, Shinzan Palma, Tenku Ruff, Sato Ryoki, Shishin Wick, and Gyokei Yokoyama


Wednesday, January 13th – Monday, April 12th, 2021


Join Zen teachers from across the United States and Japan for an in-depth exploration of Zen practice and study. Guided by Eihei Dogen’s practical and luminous text, Shobogenzo Zuimonki, The Treasury of the True Dharma Eye: Record of Things Heard, we will learn how his teachings can inform, inspire and deepen our practice, and contribute to the global healing so needed today.


Through weekly dharma talks, daily emails, group discussion, and meditation, we will explore how we can open our hearts to a troubled world.


This unique practice period includes:


  • Weekly dharma talks, live streamed Sunday Evening at 7:30pm ET and will be available any time via video recordings.
  • Daily email reflections selected from the study text to support our learning.
  • Daily opportunities to sit Zazen in our Online Zendo with participants from around the world with two additional dharma talks each week.
  • Access to an online forum for discussion and reflection with other Commit to Sit practitioners.

Each Commit to Sit registration supports the important direct care, training and educational work of New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care.
