We will discuss this interview at our next meeting and may play some of this recording when the group is together.
This interview is focused on a Zen teacher. Last time we had teachings from Mindfulness/Vipassana teachers. I hope that we will continue to learn about different perspectives/traditions as we go. More input from the group will come as we continue.
In the latest episode of Tricycle Talks, contributing editor Amy Gross speaks with Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, Abbot of the Village Zendo in New York City and former New York University professor of interactive media, on how to cultivate compassion for ourselves through honest reflection, breaking down any sort of “fixed self-identity,” and living in the present moment.
