“Zen is awakening to the dynamic reality of the present moment…..Zen is finding love in all things at all times. ” ~ Ruben Habito
Valerie explores Zen practice from the mind of compassion and curiosity, looking at the Buddhist origin story – Shakyamuni’s awakening – and the fruits of practice. Valerie asks, What is Zen? A life long path of awakening and a practice to cultivate present moment awareness on and off the cushion. This talk is the first teisho from our February 2021 Valentine’s weekend Introduction to Zen Retreat.
