Dharmatalk:Already One: 2019 Spring Sesshin (Part 4 of 4)

February 20, 2020

“…and the deepest level of communication is not communication, it’s communion.”  ~ Thomas Merton

comfort compassion

Description: This is the final talk of the Spring 2019 sesshin. It is a “key points” summary of the previous talks, beginning with a discussion of various zones of human healing and wisdom. Bodhidharma described two gates to the Zen path—entry by principle and entry by practice. This is the springboard to discuss many aspects of practice and the experience of awakening, which both generates and leaves an imprint of an intense sense of beauty, inexorably bound up with love and compassion.
