Monshin Nannette Overley: Gifts of the Saha World Upaya Zen Center's Dharma Podcast

    • Buddhism

Monshin Nannette Overley weaves together the talks we’ve heard during the Fall Practice Period on emptiness and compassion, while exploring the difference between sentimental compassion and true compassion. She calls us to remember the true gift of having a practice, in this world, to wake up. She  reminds us that our practice is a treasure which allows us to experience all that life has to offer and supports us in taking action from a place of true compassion. She encourages us to go beyond dualistic thinking and remember that there is no difference between the helper and the one being helped.
