No Cover or Fence: Zazenkai with Valerie Forstman (video)

February 13, 2022

In this talk from the first Zazenkai of the New Year, Valerie turns to the life and poetry of Qiyuan Xinggang, a 17th c. Chinese nun, master, and abbess, whose experience invites us to find our seat on a meditation cushion with ‘no cover or fence.’ There we can bare our hearts, drop our assumptions, and find our home in this achingly broken world without the slightest gap.

Recorded in our virtual zendo on January 15, 2022.
