    The Path of Nourishment

    The Path of Nourishment

    This talk looks at "nourishment" as the other side of suffering. When is an experience nourishing—independent of whether it is pleasant or unpleasant? The answer lies in the practice of completing that which appears: allowing our experience to be exactly what it is at this time and also allowing it to become what it wants to become. Dogen's Genjo Koan can be used to understand the spatial and temporal aspects of the practice of completing.

    Working with Habits/Karma: Part IV

    Working with Habits/Karma: Part IV

    What is enlightenment? And what is the relationship to habits and karma? This talk examines what the words "enlightenment," "awakening," and "realization" point to. It presents a "practice of enlightenment" based on Dogen's instruction "to be steadily intimate with the field of mind." The practice of enlightenment is not a self-improvement or self-actualization project. However, improvement is a valid interest; so how do we approach it in the context of enlightenment?

    Working with Habits/Karma: Part III

    Working with Habits/Karma: Part III

    Using the koan of "Baizhang's Fox" (Case 8 in the Book Serenity), this talk asks about the Middle Way of being simultaneously free from and entangled in the world of karmic patterns. We are free from karma by savoring nirvanic moments and establishing ourselves more and more in the field of mind that non-reactively allows everything to be the way it is. When we relax and stop seeing ourselves as a problematic person, we can engage with our habits in a practical way, engaging the 10,000 things from moment to moment and inviting their feedback about which of our habits need to change to better benefit all beings.

    Working with Habits/Karma: Part II

    Working with Habits/Karma: Part II

    Transformation through Buddhist practice includes changing our habits/karma. Karma refers to the patterns in our life that emerge from repeated intentional action that, through the repetition, gets automated and subconsciously habituated. This talk examines the structure of habits and how they can be deconstructed. It suggests bringing the practice of Zazen into our daily lives by deliberately being present for the disturbing feelings we tend to "medicate" with our dysfunctional habits and, as a first step, allowing those feelings to be there without doing anything about them.

    Compassion in Disagreement

    Compassion in Disagreement

    This talk takes up a question many people ask these days in the face of political polarization and climate change denial. How can we have compassion with those we disagree with? Usually, we try to establish community on the conceptual level—through an agreement about ideas, opinions, and values. A more fundamental connectedness occurs through "resonance," the bodymind's capacity to "feel with" everything that happens around it. This is the root of com-passion. A deliberate practice of resonance allows us to stay open-hearted in the midst of disagreement.
