Say something without using your lips and tongue.

—Songyuan’s Three Barriers, Case 20, Gateless Barrier

Jordan:  Sunday I was scheduled to play for the PZI meditation & talk. I had been working on Songyuan’s koan. I began riffing on the idea of “playing the guitar without moving your fingers.” It took me a while, it did not make sense. But I knew my brain was never gonna figure it out. If I could get around that, I knew my body could understand it and my heart could understand it.

Join Jon Joseph Roshi & Special Guest Jordan McConnell for a koan, meditation, dharma talk, conversation, & music. All are welcome. Register to participate.
