Shoryu Eddie Eusepi talks about how rituals, Zen and otherwise, can subvert our narcissistic tendencies. When we participate in rituals we engage with others in movements of reciprocity. In this sense, there is a socio-political dimension to ritual. Ritual can teach us how to create a world based not on getting what we want and […]
Zen Buddhism became popular in post WWII San Francisco, especially among beat poets like Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and Tram Combs. The influence of Zen extended into cookbooks, when Edward Espe Brown began baking at the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center.
Edward Brown has been practicing Zen since 1965. Ordained as a priest by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi in 1971, he received Dharma Transmission from Mel Weitsman in 1996. He was the first head resident cook at Tassajara Zen Mountain Center from 1967 to 1970. He later worked at the celebrated Greens Restaurant in San Francisco. He has taught meditation retreats and vegetarian cooking classes throughout North America and Europe. He is the author of several books and also has edited a book of Suzuki Roshi lectures, Not Always So. Ed is the founder and teacher of the Peaceful Sea Sangha. He is the subject of the 2007 film How to Cook Your Life. This dharma-talk was given on June 4th, 2022 at his sesshin at Felsentor.

This talk explores the relationship between sitting meditation (zazen) and attentiveness in everyday life. It's starts with Joko Beck's definition of enlightenment as the "ending in yourself of that hope for something other than life being as it is" and unfolds practice as the effortless effort to allow one's experience to be exactly what it is at this time—that is, to fully commit to the present moment. Feeling unconditionally alive instead of chasing happy feelings is the fruit of this practice.Welcome to Zen Mind!THE PATH OF ALIVENESS is now on sale!Become a Boulder Zen Center Member!

Making art at this time on the planet and in this country is more important than ever. The pressure is mounting and the disconnection continues and you could allow your self to be lead by others people's thoughts and the din of social media, the cultural malaise OR you could GET DOWN AND MAKE ART, MAKE FILMS, MAKE MUSIC! That is a mantra of our guests, (another long awaited PART 2) as they have been guests on NIK POD before…The Adams Family Returns to the No, I Know Podcast! Who is the Adam's Family? John Adams, Toby Poser, and their daughters, Lulu and Zelda (collectively celebrated as Adams Family Films) are a film making family under the creative marquee of Wonder Wheel Productions. They have collaborated on six features: HELLBENDER, which premiered at Fantasia Film Festival and was acquired by Shudder/AMC Networks through Yellow Veil Pictures for an early 2022 release); The Deeper You Dig (2020), which also premiered at Fantasia and is distributed by Dark Sky Films and Arrow Video; Their other films: Halfway to Zen (2016); The Shoot (2014); Knuckle Jack (2013); and Rumblestrips (2012) - all earning a hearty reception on the international festival circuit, including Best in Show and Audience awards. For each they've employed the same DIY ethic: they write, direct, produce; they shoot, edit, act, and compose. Music in this Episode: "Drive" Written and Performed by The Adams Family and "I Remember You" (Lyrics written by Vincent Bryan and Music By Harry Von Tilzer ) performed and produced by James Harrell and Ilyana Kadushin for the soundtrack of "Deeper You Dig" by Adams Family.
Steve--the Zen master of deep discussion on all things building--explains how he thinks of these two terms. If you don't integrate, you end up solving during application, be it moving water off the building or transferring structural loads. This approach to designing, specifying, and constructing means the window package is connected to the HVAC system, the roof plan connects entryways to gutters, and a problem popping up on paper won't get better or easier on the job site. Although you might get discouraged with the dubious initial focus on beanie babies, hang in there for some insightful exchanges with Steve, Jake, and Pete.

Yes, universal!Existence unlimitedto our perception* * *In the last session we concluded the introduction to this summary of the intersection of Design Thinking and Zen by linking Buddha's Four Noble Truths to my Four Spheres of Influence and Endeavor as encountered in daily life. The semantic model shown illustrates correlations between the Four Spheres — Universal, Natural, Social, and Personal — and the Existence, Origin, Cessation, and Eightfold Path to cessation, of suffering. We will explore the connections of each in order, in the next four segments. These include: Universal Existence, Natural Origin, Social Path, and Personal Cessation, all linked to dukkha, the Buddhist term usually translated as “suffering.” As we will see, it has a broader meaning.Sometimes overlooked in considering the Four Noble Truths are Buddha's admonitions, charges, or challenges accompanying each. We are to strive to “fully understand” the existence of suffering; to abandon its origin, usually interpreted as craving; to realize its cessation, hopefully in this lifetime; and to fully follow the Noble Eightfold Path to the realization of suffering. That's a tall order.But if we take the Design thinking approach, we can regard the prospect of fully understanding the existence of suffering as just another example of fully defining the problem, albeit the most intractable and elusive of all problems, that of existence itself. The proposition that existence is a problem, or should be regarded as such, is itself subject to challenge. But most religions and philosophies characterize our existence as a human being as a kind of test, from Job's Old Testament lament, to the triumph of reasoning of the Enlightenment, and theism's personal epiphany of being reborn, as well as Zen Buddhism's potential of spiritual awakening — kensho or satori in Japanese. Of course, the usual caveat applies, that the approach to solving this problem in Zen begins and ends with experience on the cushion, or informed by that process of personal introspection. As we often emphasize in interfaith dialog with other clergy and students online, world peace can only come about through the establishment of personal peace. Zen's pop-up exam takes place in zazen, pass or fail.Another way to phrase the first Noble Truth is that Existence is of the nature of suffering. That is, dukkha may be regarded simply as inexorable change. Galaxies colliding in space is an example of Universal Existence of change. It is not personal, but a universal principle. Human beings are necessarily caught up in it, through birth, aging, sickness and death, and tend to take it very personally. This is why it is called “suffering.” But this suffering is too laden with emotional and sentimental connotations to fit the definition of a universal principle. Suffering in the Buddhist sense has a connotation of allowing, as in “Suffer the little children to come unto me,” paraphrasing a comment attributed to Christ. He is also quoted as saying that unless we become like little children, we cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.So in the face of universal change, we are reduced to the state of children. Innocent, perhaps, but still responsible for adapting to reality. We find examples of human suffering in all spheres of our existence, including personal issues of aging, sickness and death, which is also characteristic of the natural sphere, where our relationship to Nature is ever-more challenging, owing partially to our success as a species in dominating the planet and diminishing the resources of life support. But most of us are inclined to identify the sources of our suffering as social in nature.These are all conjoined, as the pressures of living in modern society are certainly linked to the pressures of population. From stress on the commute to family unity at home, and comity at the office, much of our dissatisfaction with life in the fast lane stems from the fact that there are so many others queuing up in that same lane. And, of course, they are not usually as polite or considerate as you or I tend to be. In the modern idiom, they do not, or will not, stay in their lane, and out of ours.Please excuse me if you have heard this before, but I think an experiment I read about is germane. The scientists involved simply took the classic rats-in-the-maze to a new level, adding more and more rats. At a certain point of overpopulation or crowding, the rats began attacking each other. In human terms, each began to blame the others for the situation. If memory serves, it revealed a kind of proportionality between the space available and the degree of occupancy, which may reflect a natural limit to the population of any species. There is a relevant question in Taoism, from the “Tao te Ching” of Lao Tzu if memory serves, which asks the question, something like, Which is more destructive — success or failure? The very success of a species may be akin to the growth of a virus, which finally exceeds the capacity of its host to sustain, leading to the death of the host but also of the parasite.Another Taoist saying reminds us that, When the blaming begins, there is no end to the blame, or some such admonition. What we see in politics these days is largely the blame game writ large, usually on a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't basis. Increasingly, decisions regarding spending decreasing resources are taken in this no-win kind of context. Even speaking out on a given issue, no matter what position one takes, is likely to bring down hostilities upon one's head, from the cold waters of the social media. The very anonymity provided by the network fosters the tendency of many disgruntled fellow travelers to fire broadsides at every comment, no matter how reasonable or anodyne. The privacy of the original communication is often compromised, exposing the messenger to the mob, including searchable data such as the identities of their family members, along with contact and location information. Thus, the natural moan of stress and threat of living is amplified to a scream through the feedback process, like a mic and speaker facing each other. Humans are the worst enemy of humans.When we turn from our social world — as restricted to human beings — to the natural sphere, we find other social animals, such as elephants and whales, who have their own networks, and presumably some level of stress emanating from them. Much more certainly they suffer from the dire circumstances in which they live as prey to other species, primarily the encroachment of humans on their turf, and as victims of the harvesting of ivory and other private parts for such human dalliances as trivial trinkets, and supposed aphrodisiacs. Our stewardship of the creatures of the Earth has demonstrated a downward curve for most of our history, but now that we are outnumbering as well as outmaneuvering our distant cousins, many are staring into the abyss of extinction. Which is where the Natural sphere is trumped by the Universal. From the perspective of the victim of extinction, it matters little whether the end comes as the result of a meteor or comet, or the slow erosion of viable food stocks and potable water. So-called “pets” and live exhibits such as zoos are the few remaining concessions to inclusion of lowly beasts in our social circle, now that the age of horsepower has long since passed.When we look at the intersection of the Universal and the Natural, disregarding for the nonce the Social and Personal realms, we see that it is also not a respecter of persons, or dharma beings. The most awe-inspiring example may be the black hole, at least based on our current understanding of cosmic dynamics of change, dukkha on the largest scales we can envision. Whole galaxies, solar systems, stars, planets, moons and asteroids and all, provide the daily fare keeping the monster fed. We charmingly describe such processes with familiar tropes, such as that a black hole is “eating” its way through the universe, gobbling celestial bodies as we consume lesser animals and plants of the globe. A recent special on the blue whale identified them as the largest mammals to ever live on the planet — in the ocean, more exactly — as large as a Boeing 737. Yet they live on krill, one of the smallest animals on the planet. But the volume of their dining may be the closest living analogy to a black hole in the animal kingdom. Tens of thousands of tons of water in one gulp! Yet even this behemoth may be threatened with extinction, owing to the activities of the noisome human parasite.In the face of such vast scales of existence, and with the looming threat of universal and natural chickens coming home to roost, through imminent climate change, the very idea that what we call suffering is indeed universal may be disturbing, even overwhelming. And as Master Dogen reminds us in Jijuyu Zammai —Self-fulfilling Samadhi, even if we manage to divest ourselves of our ignorance, and the “whole phenomenal world becomes the Buddha's seal, and the entire sky turns into enlightenment,” even then “all this does not appear within perception, because it is unconstructedness in stillness, it is immediate realization.” So the frustration with the ungraspable nature of this truth is baked in. But we mustn't forget the micro, along with the macrocosmos. The microcosmos is also the manifestation of the universal existence of suffering, just on the other end of the scale spectrum. It recalls a line from one of our beloved Ch'an poems, Hokyo Zammai [Precious Mirror Samadhi], by Master Tozan, founder of Soto Zen in China:So minute it enters where there is no gap — so vast it transcends dimensionA hairsbreadth deviation and you are out of tuneI hear an unspoken “but” or “however” before this last bombshell — any deviation, however slight, and we are “out of tune.” Like tuning an old-fashioned analog radio dial, a little to the left or to the right, we get nothing but static. Only when we hit the frequency dead on in the middle, do we receive the transmission with clarity. If we persist in our meditation, we can hopefully penetrate beyond the Personal, Social and Natural barriers, all the way to the Universal, which is not only outside us at the furthest remove, but also inside us, at the most intimate. As Master Hakuin reminds, actually there is no “inner,” nor is there any “outer.” It is all clear, clean through. Spacetime is neither space, nor time.In the next segment we will take a look at Natural Origin, the origin of our suffering through the craving of our body, our mouth, and our mind.

Episode 114: “Cutting the Cat in Two”: A Guided Meditation for Dealing with ConflictSupport the show
We are all longing for freedom, freedom to be who we are. Throughout the centuries, over and over the cry comes in so many forms. So many practices are dedicated to becoming free, emotionally, spiritually, socially. Many dedicate their lives and work to this goal. But what is it that is constraining us? What is freedom exactly, and how is it truly experienced? Zen practice asks us to stop our race, pause a moment and really see where we are not free? What is it that is confining us, trapping us? Where is it? Zen asks us to Return to simplicity, to our breath, our life, each step we take. When we Return and take our attention off the endless voices, memories and beliefs that storm us, then we are able to encounter that which is open, loving, available and freedom itself, in every step we take.
The popular mantra, 'I am enough,' is actually an insult; it is disempowering. I get that it is a bridge in the self-development process because of the programming that people have received and they believe this lie but the analogy that I like to use is: If you went to a beautiful mountain lake and saw the most epic sunset of your entire life and you said, 'You are enough; yeah, that's enough'; what are you talking about? We are so much more than 'enough;' that is the understatement of the century. That belief has to change. - Tara Garrison Are You Stressed Out Lately?

The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients. Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy. PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier. Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended... on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s. Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight. Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

The energy she is feeling in Austin while visiting it for KetoCon and this interview. Power Quotes From The Show How to Tap Into Your Creation Energy "You already are worthy. 100% you are worthy of success, of love, of better health. You don't even have to question that and the more you know that the more you will just be. A tree isn't sitting there wondering if it's worthy, it just is. Remember this when you catch yourself with a negative mindset about your body, work, or personal growth. When we see our worth; we feel it and when we resonate in it full of gratitude and truly see ourselves, that is actually creation energy. When you tap into that, you're no longer coming from a place of scarcity and trying to prove yourself to the world." - Tara Garrison Why Are We Attracted to Food Camps? "We are so attracted to specific food camps because of our lack of self-development and people wanting to be led, taught, and get the Cliff notes of what is best. Then maybe they try that diet and they truly do feel better and it helps them. For example, If someone heals their SIBO with the carnivore diet, they are going to be feeling a lot better. But then if you have all of these respectable health professionals telling you all the reasons why this is THE best diet in the world for all humans, which a lot of it is for their monetary gain, you're not going to be really listening to yourself and what your own body needs. If all of that happens, you are setting yourself up to be in this very safe way of thinking." - Tara Garrison Getting Back Into Powerful Alignment "When you are out of alignment, ask yourself, 'What is my fear?' Are you investing in yourself? Do you take courses, hire mindset coaches, or follow intuitive nudges and go on a trip that your intuition told you to do just for you?" - Tara Garrison Links From Today's Show Inside Out Podcast Episode 13: JOSH TRENT Breathwork, Ayahuasca & Following Your Heart Higher 1:1 Coaching Short Term Keto by Tara Garrison 338 Tara Garrison: Inside Out Health Bruce H.

Since childhood, Denise Beck-Clark has had the parallel interests of psychology and writing/literature. After spending her twenties writing and earning a living with menial jobs, she spent the next 30-some years as a psychotherapist and social worker, finding time to write whenever possible. Now retired and devoted to writing full-time, Ms. Beck-Clark hopes her writing will have the same positive impact on readers as her work did for patients as a clinician.Her writing career began with the publication of several nonfiction articles. In 1999, her creative non-fiction book, Concurrent Sentences: A True Story of Murder, Love and Redemption, was published by New Horizon Press. A screenplay adaptation is in process.She's recently published flash fiction and essays online, along with a paperback poetry collection, The Zen of Forgetting. She wrote a blog for several years until 2015 and currently writes essays for Medium. Thirty Years Hence is her first published novel.Beck-Clark started her career in psychotherapy as a social worker at Manhattan Psychiatric Center outpatient clinic, and as a psychotherapist at Flatlands Guidance Center in Brooklyn, in 1986. She had a private psychotherapy practice in Manhattan for 13 years while acting as a psychiatric social worker at Bronx Psychiatric Center inpatient wards until 1999. She then moved to the center's outpatient clinic, from 1999 – 2011.ABOUT THE BOOK:A story of two women in NYC in 1973: Michelle Cooper, age 23, is despairing and without direction, having barely survived the turbulent household of her parents, and her own adolescent foray into sixties' hippiedom. Forty-something Ida Birnbaum, a Queens, NY wife and mother, and survivor of Auschwitz concentration camp, 30 years later battles her own malaise during a serious and potentially damaging midlife crisis.Like many folks during the so-called "Me Decade", both Michelle and Ida indulge in hedonistic and self-destructive activities and then must deal with the consequences. They each turn for support to their evolving friendship and to characters such as Theo, an idealistic young immigrant who lives in an Upper West Side SRO hotel and works for a telephone prayer service run by Charles, another Holocaust survivor, and self-fashioned spiritual guru.http://denisebeck-clark.comThe Douglas Coleman Show now offers audio and video promotional packages for music artists as well as video promotional packages for authors.

We use an old Zen story to look at Doing Nothing as skillful action. Excerpt "A young monk is struggling and he goes to his master, telling him he is really struggling. So he asks his Master Ganto. When the three worlds threaten me, what shall I do?" Ganto answered, "Sit down." "I do not understand," said the monk. Ganto said, "Pick up the mountain and bring it to me. Then I will tell you." .. You can just see the poor monk, overwhelmed by the three worlds, which are the world of form, the world of thought and the world of desire… basically everything - He is coming to the master for help – in my own translation, the young says again to Ganto, I am at my wits end, what the hell am I supposed to do. Ganto looks him right in the face and says sit down. Can you imagine, I don't think it was what he was expecting – he probably was even more confused because he was already sitting down....
Why do we chant in Zen? What does chanting have to do with Zazen and practicing awareness in our everyday lives?

Uchiyama Roshi's Opening the Hand of Thought is a great book for the beginner as well as the advanced practitioner of Zen. Uchiyama manages to balance philosophical discussion of the most challenging Zen topics - the nature of zazen, and awakening to universal self - with a compassionate, down-to-earth, creative (and sometimes humorous) style that makes you think, "I just might get it this time!"

Please welcome my guest on this week's episode, Matthew Thomas Baker, who holds an MBA in creative writing, a Master in psychology and counselling an has not only been the educational leader of an innovative High School for the Arts for approximately 25 years but also a member of the International Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids and the founder and spiritual director of the Institute of Nondual Shamanism. He just quite recently published an exceptional book ‘The Way of the Mystic Wizard' which will be the main topic of our conversation. Growing up in Massachusetts right next to a forest upon undeveloped land surrounded by animals, Matthew spent plenty of his time outdoors and practiced nature mysticism before he even knew there was an actual term for it. In High School, a book on Zen poetry and the initiatic work ‘Siddharta' by Hermann Hesse deeply influenced him and so after entering college Matthew was pretty much fascinated by philosophical and spiritual ideas which ultimately made him taking courses in mythology mainly with an exceptional teacher who introduced his students to the huge diversity of belief systems all around the world challenging them to think outside of the box. Matthew will kindly allow us some insights into his book ‘The Way of the Mystic Wizard' which is based on his 15 years teaching about poetry, myth and the art of transformation in his school. He will explain how his personal work comes from a more organic place instead of one of separation, what the real meaning of Shamanism is as part of the world's heritage, how his teaching style includes not only poetry and symbolism but also Jungian psychology and guided inner world journeys and what positive (!) role the pandemic played in turning his teachings into a book that is now available to a much bigger community than before. As Matthew's book is titled ‘The Way of the Mystic Wizard', we will explore the archetype of this figure and the book's structure which is quite similar to a course written for people with little to no experience offering an access point to anyone interested to find out if this path might be the right one for oneself. In this context we will go into detail and try to answer the main questions such as ‘Why should I start a spiritual practice at all, what's in for me?', continuing with the omnipresent task of ‘Know Thyself!', discuss the necessity of what it takes to break through invisible barriers, how cosmology, poetry and journaling tie in with all this and most importantly, how the changes within effect everything else without.

Today we're taking a short break and re-releasing one of our favorite episodes from 2022, a conversation with the novelist and Buddhist priest Ruth Ozeki. We'll be back with new episodes next week!The world has gotten louder, even when we're alone. A day spent in isolation can still mean a day buffeted by the voices on social media and the news, on podcasts, in emails and text messages. Objects have also gotten louder: through the advertisements that follow us around the web, the endless scroll of merchandise available on internet shopping sites and in the plentiful aisles of superstores. What happens when you really start listening to all these voices? What happens when you can't stop hearing them?Ruth Ozeki is a Zen Buddhist priest and the author of novels including “A Tale for the Time Being,” which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, and “The Book of Form and Emptiness,” which I read over paternity leave and loved. “The Book of Form and Emptiness” is about Benny, a teenager who starts hearing objects speak to him right after his father's death, and it's about his mother, Annabelle, who can't let go of anything she owns, and can't seem to help her son or herself. And then it's about so much more than that: mental illnesses and materialism and consumerism and creative inspiration and information overload and the power of stories and the role of libraries and unshared mental experiences and on and on. It's a book thick with ideas but written with a deceptively light, gentle pen.Our conversation begins by exploring what it means to hear voices in our minds, and whether it's really so rare. We talk about how Ozeki's novels begin she hears a character speaking in her mind, how meditation can teach you to detach from own internal monologue, why Marie Kondo's almost animist philosophy of tidying became so popular across the globe, whether objects want things, whether practicing Zen has helped her want less and, my personal favorite part, the dilemmas posed by an empty box with the words “empty box” written on it.Mentioned:The Great Shift by James L.

✨ SUBSCRIBE TO THE OVERPRICED JPEGS CHANNEL ✨ https://bankless.cc/jpegs Zeneca_33 is back once again for another Moment of Zen(eca) episode! This one is a little bit different, though. We also welcome back repeat and special guest, Brenden Mulligan to the show! Zeneca personally, Brenden's company, Premint, and some of their respective followers and users all recently fell victim to two separate hacks. Carly and Zenca first cover the hottest macro and NFT updates of the week. And then in the second half of the show, Carly brings in Brenden to discuss his and Zeneca's hack—how they believe it happened, how they plan on preventing something like this from happening again, how they made the decision to reimburse those that were scammed, and their advice to others on how to never get scammed! As always, we hope you enjoy this special and very important Moment of Zen(eca) episode! ------
Welcome to a Voices of Esalen archive edition. Our featured lecture was delivered at Esalen as a part of a weeklong training in 2018, by wise teachers Jack Kornfield and Trudy Goodman. Jack Kornfield is one of the key teachers to introduce Buddhist mindfulness practice to the West. He trained as a Buddhist monk in the monasteries of Thailand, India and Burma, and has taught meditation internationally since 1974 .After graduating from Dartmouth College in Asian Studies in 1967 he joined the Peace Corps and worked on tropical medicine teams in the Mekong River valley. He later met and studied as a monk under the Buddhist master Ajahn Chah. Returning to the United States, Jack co-founded the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, and the Spirit Rock Center in Woodacre, California, with fellow meditation teachers Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein . His books have been translated into 20 languages and sold more than a million copies. They include, A Wise Heart, Living Dharma; and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry. Trudy Goodman has devoted much of her life to practicing Buddhist meditation. She is one of the earliest teachers of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and co-taught with Jon Kabat-Zinn at the MBSR clinic at University of Massachusetts Medical School. In 1995 she co-founded the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy, the first center in the world dedicated to exploring the synergy of these two disciplines. From 1991 to 1998, Trudy was a resident Zen teacher at the Cambridge Buddhist Association. She then moved to Los Angeles and founded InsightLA, the first center in the world to combine training in both Buddhist Insight (Vipassana) Meditation and nonsectarian mindfulness and compassion practices. After becoming a mother, Trudy co-founded a school for distressed children, practicing mindfulness-based psychotherapy with children, parents, teenagers, couples and individuals. She has trained a generation of teachers, mindfulness humanitarians who make mindfulness and meditation classes available for professional caregivers, social justice and environmental activists, unsung individuals working on the front lines of suffering – all done with tenderness, courage and a simple commitment to holding hands together. (Side note: She is also the voice of “Trudy the Love Barbarian” on the Netflix series Midnight Gospel.) This is an wonderful talk. They cover so much, including how we may misuse mindfulness, how thought is a great servant but not a great master, how we may navigate living in this life of 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Also, Jack and Trudy are married, for those who don't know, and they comment insightfully on their relationship during the question and answer section of this talk. A final note: at one point, Jack and Trudy comment on an Esalen community member who died unexpectedly in 2018. They are in fact referring to Weston Call, who was a friend to so many people at Esalen and in Big Sur. This episode is dedicated to his memory.
Welcome to episode 34 of The Way Out Is In: The Zen Art of Living, a podcast series mirroring Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's deep teachings of Buddhist philosophy: a simple yet profound methodology for dealing with our suffering, and for creating more happiness and joy in our lives.This time, the presenters, Zen Buddhist monk Brother Phap Huu and journalist Jo Confino, talk about the modern diseases of busyness, overwhelm, and burnout, and how Zen Buddhist practices and Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings can help us regain our balance. Brother Phap Huu shares his thoughts on busyness in a monastic environment; coming home to ourselves and learning to stop in the midst of crises; the four elements (the practice, the study, the service, the joy); the noble silence practice in a retreat, and becoming one with the silence; learning to stop and listen to ourselves; the practice of deep belly breathing; impermanence. And do you know how the Zen Master himself would face up and deal with overwhelm?Jo shares his thoughts on the Climate Leaders retreat and makes a case for an “age of community.” He further reflects on allowing vulnerability in our overwhelm and busyness; compassion for ourselves; selfishness and selflessness; simplicity in the practice; guilt. The episode ends with a short meditation guided by Brother Phap Huu.

And when we associate to this practice, a lot of the habits that we have as a practitioner, especially practitioners, we want to feel the good sensation more than the negative. But here, in the spirit of Buddhism, the teachings of the Buddha, when we speak about mindfulness, it is to embrace everything that is happening.” “A lot of monks in this time, and generations before us, have Zen gardens. They have gardens that they would take care of because that is also a way of directing energy, so overwhelming is an energy. So our practice is learning to identify the energy and directing that energy so that it can bring us back to balance.” “What I think is core to Buddhist practice is that we can only be useful in the world if we’re in balance ourselves. And it’s not selfish to look after yourself, it’s actually selfless because it’s only when our bowl is full and overflowing that we’re able to naturally give to other people. And when our bowl is empty, actually we’ve got nothing to give.” “When you come to our practice in the retreats, this is the first thing we teach everyone: learning to stop. That’s why these bells in the monastery are so important. We have this aspiration to stop, but our habit, our ancestral habit, our habit from society is so strong in us that we feel like we have to do something.” “Learn to listen to yourself.” “Don’t wait for life to be difficult to start practising, but learn to practise in the good times so that when a difficult time comes, we’ve already built that into our system. Because a lot of people think, ‘Oh, well, life is fine. Why do I need to be mindful? Why do I do this? Because everything’s good.’ But it’s when we have space in the good times to focus and to understand how our mind works, how our body works, how we can reflect on ourselves, that in the moments where things get very tough and we lose that space, that we already know how to act. And I think a lot of people feel that they can just do this when times are bad.” “Coming home to oneself is the beginning of transformation, because when we have the capacity to come home, that’s when we can work on oneself.” “We want to create sustainability outside, but we have to create sustainability inside also.” “When you come home to yourself, this is transformation at the base.” “An important aspect of dealing with overwhelm is to be vulnerable with it, because often we feel that to cope we have to close down, and we have to protect ourselves. Whereas, more than often, the truth is we open up, we share, we are present, we show our weaknesses, we show our scars. And that gives other people permission to do the same.” “I think so much of dealing with overwhelm, dealing with busyness is to be vulnerable in it. Because if we all feel alone and none of us are sharing about it, then all we’re doing is exacerbating it. We’re not letting anyone offer their support. No one can offer their care because we’ve closed the door.” “Man is not our enemy. It is ignorance.”
