Dharmatalk: Meet your Life

May 31, 2022

Description: Natalie Goldberg gives an inspiring talk about Zen in action. She describes some of her background experiences in both Zen and writing and how they interact and nourish each other. She talks about taking up writing as her practice, encouraged by her teacher Katagiri Roshi. Natalie reveals three guiding formations from her years with Katagiri Roshi:

  1. Continue under all circumstances – keep going.
  2. Don’t be tossed away. Know what you need and know who you are. You find out who you are by sitting zazen.
  3. Make a positive effort for the good. Even in the most challenging of circumstances, get up and do something. “Brush your teeth.” Enjoy this delightful dharma talk.

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