Teisho: Some Travel Excursions

November 10, 2016

“… Zen training is about: letting go of all understanding, all good and bad, and right and wrong, so we can receive the boundless wonder of now, just as it is…”

boundless now

Description: Henry talks about his August trip to Germany where he leads 3 sesshins each year at Sonnenhof with a long-term Sanbo Zen group. Henry describes the Sonnenhof center and we learn about some masters in our lineage including the flawed yet great Yasutani Roshi. After leading the Sonnenhof sesshin, Henry traveled to the Sanbo Zen teachers’ retreat — an event that has occurred annually since 1989 and is designed to support western teachers in the lineage.  There Henry presented Mountain Cloud’s plans for expansion and development which were received warmly by the Sanbo Zen teachers. In closing, Henry reminds us what Zen training is about: letting go of all understanding, all good and bad, and right and wrong, so we can receive the boundless wonder of now, just as it is .
