Sangha Member Talk – James Gregg
October 17 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm
In Case #5 of the Mumonkan, Zen Master Kyogen asks us to sit with the question: what now? Are we going to ignore our predicament and try to stay in that tree forever, or are we going to respond to life and come down the hard way? I’ll read out the case and then offer my personal response to this teaching, and open the virtual floor to discussion – how do you respond when your branches start swaying?
The Discussion happens at 11:15, after the morning practice schedule of Chanting and Zazen, which begins at 9:30am.
Please feel free to join at any point in the schedule. Click here for our full Sunday schedule.
