Embodying Relationality, a Dharma Talk by Korin Charlie Pokorny

Saturday, July 17 at 10:00 am

There is a story that whenever Dogen would draw water from the river running in front of Eiheiji, he would return a half-dipper of the water to the river. How does this story speak to busy lives? How does it speak to zazen? How does it speak to the relationship between zazen and busy lives?

Join our ONLINE ZENDO to attend this Dharma talk, and any part of our Saturday Morning Program (details below)
