Chiezan and Unyo read aloud Sokuzan’s instruction guidelines on facilitating a dharma book study group, and Sokuzan responds to questions. Just a few highlights from Sokuzan’s instructions: “Read aloud slowly. Encourage interruption to discuss, clarify, or question what is being said. Facilitate connection with one another. Encourage people to trust themselves. Do not look to translate what you see into something else just because you can. Listen more. If you think you look foolish, just rest there. If people leave more confused, this is not a bad thing. Nothing needs fixing.”
