Audio: PZI Zen Online: Our culture needs to renew its old dreams. And it is good when the bottom falls out. We are still held by vastness – our job is to work in harmony with the universe. Take the role of host for everything that appears. Allow not knowing – if you know who you are, you can not take a step! Nothing before us and only a wake behind. The empathic nature of emptiness. Blessings of the Goddess. As recorded July 26th 2020.
Audio session: Blue Dragon’s Cave closing session – The grand beast of sesshin! Old dragon & tygher teachers meeting new teachers. A text on powers of dragons. Machado poem – ‘Only a wake behind us.’ Intimacy of Mazu’s dharma – ‘How are you?’ Sesshin is a work of art like rakusu. We are ‘always temporarily assembling ourselves’. All faults included in the cave. Mazu – as practice deepens make yourself a raft to transport others. Carrying the Dao is what you are! Music – Flute Michael Wilding, guitar singing Jordan MCConnell Cantor Amy Fletcher, Jan Brogan, HOP.
