THZ 215 - When It Feels Like Too Much
It can feel like it's all too much, too much to hold. We need to look at that.
THZ 214 - The Three Treasures are Teflon (Tenth Precept)
On the tenth precept, "Not defiling the three treasures." The three treasures are just fine, but still, we forget who we are in relationship to them.
THZ 213 - Freedom
Freedom—the freedom we want (perhaps especially in the age of social distancing), and the freedom we already have.
THZ 212 - Fearlessness is Generosity
Fearlessness is one of the four types of generosity. Why? And how do we get there?
THZ 211 - The Practice of Not Touching Your Face
A simple act of refraining, like not touching your face in a pandemic, can be both a practice of mindfulness and an act of generosity.
THZ 210 - Everything is Old, Everything is New
Buddhism offers what looks like two contradictory ways of meeting our mind in each moment. But maybe we can hold both.
Every single podcast carries a teaching I wish I had heard 20 years ago. These are transformative, accessible, and deeply moving lessons on how to live your best life: how to Zen.
I love this podcast!
The talks give an incredible insight not only to Buddhism, but how Zen philosophy and beliefs differ from others. As well the talks give easy to understand breakdowns of Zen while applying them to where they fit in modern times and ideologies.
Wonderful teacher, good Dharma
