Being in Conversation

Sunday dharma talk by Gentle Dragon Laura Kennedy, May 21,2017

Gentle Dragon Laura Kennedy reflects on her experience in the recent sesshin by highlighting moments of clarity and “unbinding” or drilling deep into one’s ancient twisted karma. “It’s like a rotorooter with a laser light,” she says of the process. The experience of zazen also allows us to see ourselves in others and initiates a kind of conversation, not only with other people but with the universe. She quotes Tenshin Roshi, “You are in all beings and in this great earth. And all beings and this great earth are in you.”
