“… Koans are invitations to pass through the gate of separation ...”

Description: How can we learn through the pandemic crisis to let go of the sense of separateness that is the source of so many of the world’s problems? This talk takes Case 87 from the Blue Cliff Record, where Unmon states that “Medicine and disease correspond to each other,” and asks what the disease might be if the whole world, including current events like the pandemic, is medicine. Koan practice reveals that identification with a separate self is the only part of us that requires healing.

And, here’s a link to our YouTube video of this talk.
