Event Details
ONLINE talk with Kynan Sutherland Sensei
24th November
7pm – 8.15pm

A monk once asked his teacher, Chao-chou, “What is meditation?”
The teacher replied, “It is not meditation.”
“If it is not meditation, what is it?” asked the monk.
“It’s alive, it’s alive,” said Chao-chou.

Join Kynan Sutherland Sensei (apprentice Zen teacher in the Diamond Sangha tradition), online via Zoom, as he explores the living edge of meditation with the help of Chao-chou (from 9th-century China), one of the most revered figures in the Zen tradition. To sit deeply in meditation, to open yourself to the joys, sorrows and mysteries of life, just as they are.

During the talk Kynan will offer a few koans, which we will explore together in open inquiry.
