It’s All Empty: Talk 1 from Winter Solstice Retreat, 2020

December 28, 2020

This moment – just as it is – is our reality.

In this first talk from our Winter Solstice Retreat, Henry describes how meditation practice exclusively focused on awakening (kensho) can bypass the enormous gains practice offers our ordinary lives. Zen practice directly meets our daily anxieties, joys, losses, and gains. It meets and supports us right where we are. The whole thrust of deep Buddhist teachings is to meet our lives in normal everyday reality. As we develop loving awareness (mindfulness) it’s possible to be peacefully with suffering. We can let ourselves know our suffering rather than distracting ourselves from it.

All dharma talks and Q&A sessions from the Winter Solstice Retreat are available on our YouTube Channel.  Many other talks are also available on the channel. Check it out!
