How many of us can describe out meditation sessions as "joyful"? That is the challenge Roshi Pat Enkyo O'Hara lays out for us in Week 1 of her Tricycle Retreat, "Ease and Joy in Your Meditation and Life." Joy, Roshi says, has "a leaping quality." But before we reach these heights, we must find a place of peace and ease in our meditation. That is what this retreat is about.
Below is a two-minute preview of the Week 1 teaching, which is called "The Dharma gate of Ease and Joy." To watch the entire Week 1 teaching, you must be a Tricycle Community member. To watch all four videos of the retreat, you must join the Tricycle Community at the Supporting or Sustaining level.
