Rebel Saints Meditation Society Podcast: The Dharma of Adversity
Last August I conducted a half day retreat at Seattle's own Rebel Saints Meditation Society. The talks were recorded and three of them are available on their website, iTunes and GooglePlay. It was the first retreat where I began talking about that which I now seem to land on consistently, the availability of practice in every moment, in every situation, in every thought, every feeling state. Reading the biography of Dipa Ma profoundly touched me, and linked in with my years of Zen training to remind me in the deepest of ways that this practice is not just about sitting on a cushion. This is a way of life. And so, in the face of adversity, in the face of dukkha, in the face of nibbana, we practice.
