Excerpt: Awakening is Participation in Every Moment of life – Michelle Riddle Sensei

Michelle Riddle

PZI Zen Online- Audio excerpt – Compassion is receptive earth – it does not have one face, nor is it driving or pitying. It erupts within us. It allows barriers to fall and in that way it is the ground on which we stand, the heart and soul of awakening. As recorded August 9 2020.

Fiery, Radiant Guanyin in the Pavilion Under the August Moon with Allison Atwill Roshi

Allison Atwill

PZI Zen Online – Audio: Fiery Guanyin in the butterfly tent with open wings. Allison reminds us of all the elemental manifestations of Guanyin as Space, Earth, Water, Air, and finally Fire. Guanyin manifests solutions from unseen space in any situation that is deemed unfixable. Fire is an ancient symbol of transformation but also shows itself through Gunayin as the inner radiance of all things. Every appearance has its own brightness. The koan of the great temple fire of Engaku-ji Temple in Kamakura, in which everything was burned and yet nothing was destroyed. One of the 100 Samurai Koans. As recorded, with Michael Wilding on flute. Aug 30, 2020

Guanyin’s Watery Nature in the Pavilion Under the August Moon with Tess Beasley

Tess Beasley

Audio: Guanyin in the Pavilion with Tess Beasley. Guanyin’s watery nature. Water: ‘the softest compound that can overwhelm the hardest’. Compassion dissolves and connects us. The ‘call and response’ of our relationship to Guanyin. A force greater than any striving. Like Buddha at the brink of starvation opening to the offering of milk. We can’t know how she will call us or what our response will be. The great intimacy & spaciousness of abiding nowhere together. She enters when we need a new path. Michael Wilding on flute, Jordan McConnell guitar, Amaryllis Fletcher, Cantor on violin. Aug.16 2020.
