“… {just} keenly watch our experience …”

mindfulness keenly observe

Description: This teisho is the first talk from the Spring 2018 sesshin. Over the course of these talks, Henry will touch on two sources of Zen practice, Taoism and Buddhism, and how they affect how we practice. Bodhidharma, a Buddhist monk considered to be the founder of Zen, articulated two gates, or entries, to the Zen path. These are: entry by practice and entry by principle. This talk focuses on entry by practice. Three helpful mindfulness meditation tools are: labeling our experience as pleasant or unpleasant, keenly watching our experience, and welcoming absolutely everything, even the experience we do not want.
