Talk by Sobun Katherine Thanas
A wonderful talk by Sobun Katherine Thanas, former Abbess of the Santa Cruz Zen Center who left this visible world last year. Thanks to the Santa Cruz Zen Center and SweepingZen for posting this. So clear, simple.
As a side note, at the end, she says she leans to a practice of the body over the mind. Some people are so inclined I feel. and are into the physicality, although I do not lean to any pole.
