Dharmatalk: Encounter of the Heart Retreat: The Invitation (Part 5 of 6)

July 12, 2022

“Who would waste the spark from a flint stone?” – Dogen

Description:  Anything could be that spark. Ryoun Roshi says “koans are a message from the oneness world.” They offer an invitation into our deepest curiosity. Valerie explores Case 22 of the Gateless Gate: Kashyapa’s Flagpole, and Ananda’s awakening.

And, here’s a link to our YouTube video of this talk.
