Learning To Love What Is Not For Our Keeping


Michael Yukon Grody, Senior Monastic

Zen Center of New York City, 01/05/2020

Senior monastic Yukon invokes Thomas Merton on the 50th anniversary of his death, drawing on his insights into the place of monastic life in the modern world. Merton said, “In a world of noise, confusion and conflict, is is necessary that there be a place of silence, inner discipline and peace.” Silence and stillness in our practice is what nurtures the arising of compassion which needs no justification outside itself.
