How Empty is Emptiness

A Zen Garland On-demand Course with Roshi Genki

The Evolution of Shunyata, Master Tozan’s Goi Koans And Roshi Genki’s Five Perspectives

“Emptiness that can be deemed empty is not true emptiness. Form that can be deemed form is not true form. True form is without shape. True emptiness is without name.” – Pao-tsang lun, Treasure Store Treatise, incorrectly attributed to Seng Chao.

This 6-video course by Roshi Genki was originally scheduled with accompanying online discussion groups. It is now offered as an on-demand course that you can complete at your own pace.

Recordings of the discussion groups are included. As an enrolled student you will have access to Zen Garland teachers for any questions you might have.

$60 for members of Zen Garland Order Sanghas.
$100 for fellow travelers.

Roshi Paul Genki Kahn

One of the living Zen masters of our time, Roshi Genki augments traditional Zen practices with modern psychology, philosophy, science, and socially engaged service to marginalized and disadvantaged communities. He has developed a thorough and profound holistic approach to Zen practice that offers personal and inter-relational development for skillful living in the world with love, service and joy. Roshi Genki describes this approach to spirituality as The Practice of Presence and Reclaiming the World. Roshi Genki emphasizes that the Zen training hall is our daily life, our way of being in the world with ourselves, our intimate circle, our work and our communities.
