“I knew that feeling of love which is the very essence of the soul for which no object is needed.” ~ Prince Andrei, War and Peace
Description: This is the second talk of the Fall 2018 sesshin. After some additional, helpful sesshin tools for wearing down the self, this talk unfolds into a discussion of the piercing and beautiful wisdom for Zen practitioners contained in the pages of Tolstoy’s “map of the human soul” War and Peace, beginning with the character Maria.
