Teisho: Grief, Anger and Delusion: What are we doing when we sit?

September 29, 2016

There is not a  hair’s-breadth of difference between oneself and others in the limitless universe;  heaven, earth and I are of the same root.” ~ Henry Shukman

Zen Sitting Universe

Description: Henry opens this compelling talk with his deep concern about rising political turmoil, with neo-fascism and racism affecting the UK and other western nations.  Henry talks about action in the face of turbulent times and explores how sitting is a powerful form of direct action.  Meditation creates a space where delusion can exhaust itself and bring us home to the birthplace of essential love.  Henry shares a personal story, a friend’s letter and his own convictions– all of which squarely root the dharma in our own troubled times.
