Audio: Held By Emptiness – A Well Not Dug

Audio: PZI Zen online – A framework in our practice for relying on emptiness & freedom. Not holding preset views and blessing things beyond approval and disapproval. I am you = emptiness. In Zen we shift to ‘before’ the demons grabbed our ankles. We ‘accord’ with the Dao. As recorded July 19 2020
