Almost ready to go into production on "Kalyāṇamitra: A Model for Buddhist Spiritual Care" by Rev. Monica Sanford. This is a great resource for anybody in or considering entering the field of chaplaincy. We're doing it as two volumes. The first volume covers the theory and we hope to have it available in October 2020. The second volume covers practical applications. We hope to have that available in May 2021.
Dōgen's Mountains and Rivers Sutra has been a central Zen text since its publication in the 13th century. There's a long history here of study and practice. In this latest reflection, SFZC teacher emeritus Zoketsu Norman Fischer's commentary on the sutra is organized as 52 weeks of focused attention by Kuya Minogue, resident teacher at the Creston Zen Centre in British Columbia. Tricycle Magazine recently featured an article about the book, published by Sumeru earlier this year, along with reflections on several other companion books on the same topic.
