Hi Zen Friends!^^
After our first practice of the new year this Sunday(1/2), our Dharma discussion topic will be new as well. The topic will be, 'Awakening as Affinage'. In this talk, we discuss an old issue that periodically resurfaces in Zen practice communities; gradual versus sudden awakening. I'll introduce a bit of this issue's history, a perspective from Korea's Zen tradition as well as my own 'two cents. I hope that it will offer helpful clarification about the style and direction of our practice. ^^ Come and explore this interesting topic with us!
