"love and justice are not two. without inner change, there can be no outer change; without collective change, no change matters."
Embodying the dharma is profound. Two obstacles hamper most forms of modern practice: they use mental frameworks to address habits, patterns and behaviors that are deeply held in the body, and the information is accessed in an environment (on the cushion) unlike the situations we encounter. As a result we often find it difficult to translate our best intentions into our lives.
This intensive invites brave conversation and experiential exercises that help us embody the profound power of the dharma through our very Presence. Get thoughts, feelings and action in alignment. Navigate appropriate inner and outer relationship balance. Relax into space and recover your center over and over again.
This prophetic conversation, which Rev. angel Kyodo williams had with Krista in 2018, is an invitation to imagine and nourish the transformative potential of this moment — toward human wholeness. On Being's Krista Tippett says: “(angel Kyodo williams) is one of our wisest voices on social evolution and the spiritual aspect of social healing. angel Kyodo williams is an esteemed Zen priest and the second black woman ever recognized as a teacher in the Japanese Zen lineage. To sink into conversation with her is to imagine and nourish a transformative potential of this moment towards human wholeness.”
Reverend Angel has extraordinary and actionable insights on how to stay grounded and sane through these trying times, and transform ourselves for the better as the world around us transforms. She is an activist, a Zen Buddhist priest, and the second only Black woman to be ordained as a Zen Buddhist teacher. She shares powerful techniques to find liberation, identify what matters, and use the pandemic and this unprecedented time as a powerful tool for personal growth.
