Teaching Schedule

Paul Seiko Schubert, a resident of New York City, is a dharma successor to Roshi Robert Kennedy of the White Plum Asanga. He received transmission from Roshi Kennedy in August 2007.

These groups are open to all, welcome beginners, provide beginning instruction, and request, at most, a nominal free will donation. On the scheduled dates that Paul is the visiting teacher, a short talk is given as well as the opportunity to all for individual interview.  He also works with students independently of these groups.

Support of  Independent Sitting Groups–Commitment to sit with people where they are

Zen is the great gift to experience life directly by being present fully in the moment and to express the experience in appropriate, spontaneous, and even creative responses to the time and conditions as they arise.

Just as Zen is manifested in the workplace, it should be taught where people work  and live with rigor and energy. The symbol of  this teaching practice is a walking stick.  Here, the walking stick represents a commitment to go,  sit and work with people where they are.  It is visiting in their home groups and sanghas.

These groups are open to all, welcome beginners, provide beginning instruction, and request, at most, a nominal free will donation. On the scheduled dates that  Paul Schubert is the visiting teacher, a short talk is given as well as the opportunity to all for individual interview.  He also works with students independently of these groups.

Beginners are especially invited to visit any of these  sitting groups.  (Contact information provided above.) The intent is to welcome all, provide support, and allow each to develop in their own way.  Beginners and new practitioners are encouraged to meet with the teachers. It is our experience that clarifying the basic directions of practice and meditation at the beginning is especially valuable to build a sustainable practice. This is an important reason to support the independent groups.   Providing guidance  to deepen individual practice, not talks or explanations, is the primary purpose of the visit.  The specifics are dependent upon the individual, but all activities have only the refinement of the life experience as the motivation.  This service is offered without charge.


A recent example is:  Offering Zen to Students: Letting the Practice Speak for Itself.
