Dharmatalk: Sosan, Doshin and Mu

November 9, 2021

“… The capacity to awaken is not something you have. It’s what you are ...”

Description: In this talk given jointly by Valerie and Henry on the last day of Mountain Cloud’s May 2020 4-day retreat, we consider the experiences of two of the early Chinese Zen patriarchs, Sosan and Doshin, both of whom sought liberation from the sense of unease that is part of the human condition. Zen, and particularly Mu practice, offers us a way to see how our afflictions don’t exist quite as we always thought they did, and so to be liberated from them.

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