I just had a wonderful dialogue with Rev. Shoren Heather and this conversation is now on her podcast SparkZen. We discussed some of the themes of my new book and deeply enjoyed investigated the implications of these stories and some of the koans together. She is quite insightful and I felt Shoren “got” the book i’ve written dealing with the balancing of transcendent and descendent modes of spirituality. We talked about the remedial work needed in the mending of the yin/yang of masculine and feminine qualities in Buddhism. We touched on facing the pain of our conditioning directly and being held by the compassion and infinite space of our Ancestors and Buddhas.
