“… for patience joins time to eternity.” ~ Wendell Berry

Description: This is the first talk of the 2018 Rohatsu sesshin. The focus is on how to practice and why we practice. It begins with a poem by Wendell Berry, “How to Be a Poet,” which introduces powerful advice for practitioners, particularly during a sesshin. The word “sesshin” means encountering the heart. What does the word “heart” mean in the Zen tradition? Various levels of meaning are lovingly examined.
