Village Zendo Dai-Sesshin 2017
Four Oxbow Zen practitioners have just returned from a deep and settled Dai-Sesshin with the Village Zendo at
The Grail in Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY. Can you spot them in the picture?
All the seven Dharma talks were shared as
live video through Facebook. Roshi Enkyo urges us in her talk on the “Genjokoan in Troubled Times” to find our own way for acting as a Bodhisattva Citizen ( audio). Soshin Osho uses the Koan of “ Babyface Pro Wrestling” to encourage us to notice when what we think we know creates separation between us and them ( audio), and how much learning and healing is possible when that separation eases.
Thank you for a wonderful and deep Zazenkai, March 2016.
