Description: This first talk from the October Introductory Sesshin explores some basic underpinnings of Zen practice, introducing the Three Treasures – Buddha, Dharma, Sangha – and describing how they naturally lead us to the three “fruits of practice”:

Joriki — mindful awareness, which can be further broken down into concentration, clarity and equanimity

Kensho — awakening

Actualization or personalization — living out awakening in ordinary daily life

Buddha’s aim was to uncover what it is to be a human being. He wanted to explore consciousness in a way that might resolve our human condition. Listen to this informative and motivating talk about some basic aspects of Zen practice.
