Danica Shoan Ankele, Senior Monastic and Dharma Holder
Zen Mountain Monastery, New York, Sunday 07/17/2022
Shoan reflects on what it is that we’re doing and why it matters. How does “looking inward”, rather than just outward, help us navigate our life? Shoan brings in three “boat parables” to illustrate. From Master Dogen’s Genjokoan, Charlotte Joko Beck’s “Everyday Zen”, and a poem by 17th century Chinese nun Jingnou in “Daughters of Emptiness”.
