Dharma Talk on No Coming, No Going, by AZC Tanto Rev. Choro Antonaccio

Saturday, March 21st at 10:00 am

Join us online for AZC’s first Dharma Talk offered in our online zendo, given by AZC’s incoming Tanto (Head of Practice) Rev. Choro Antonaccio. This talk is on the topic of No Coming, No Going: How to Support Each Other as We Fall, Together, and will speak to the teaching of ‘no coming, no going’ – in terms of our daily lives right now. As we see impermanence and groundlessness clearly manifest in our conventional reality, we can remember and practice compassion based in awakening.

The Dharma Talk is part of our Saturday Morning Program, which is being moved online during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. Please note the earlier than usual time of 10:00 am instead of 10:15 am, and please observe the Forms & Etiquette of our Online Zendo to help foster a harmonious and calming atmosphere for all participants. To enter the AZC Online Zendo, see instructions at the end of this page.
