Video – The Invitation: Encounter of the Heart Retreat, Talk 3, Valerie Forstman

February 5, 2021

“Who would waste the spark from a flint stone?” ~ Dogen

Anything could be that spark. Ryoun Roshi says “koans are a message from the oneness world.” They offer an invitation into our deepest curiosity. Valerie explores Case 22 of the Gateless Gate: Kashyapa’s Flagpole, and Ananda’s awakening.

All dharma talks and Q&A sessions from the Encounter of the Heart Retreat are available on our YouTube Channel.
