Meditation, conversation, teachings...
In each session, we meditate together. Each meditation is lightly guided by either D Allen or Virginia Filip, who then offers a short talk on the koan/theme for that session. After the talk we have a conversation together in which we share our confusions and insights, our stories. Virgina and D are experienced leaders in this zen practice, yet they are just people like the other participants, each a unique person with a wise heart-mind that is being discovered and shared.
The coin lost in the river is found in the river...
So many loses in this life of ours! Virginia Filip gives two talks on this koan about losing and finding, often in surprising ways, and in the one river which is our life. (in spanish)
Recorded meditations, teachings, and group conversations are offered on this website.
