This post contains audio. Listen here

sexual misconduct by nancy bakerLast week I spoke with Zen teacher and frequent Tricycle contributor Nancy Baker about her most recent article "Sexual Misconduct: The Third Zen Precept." During our interview we discussed the differences between "sexual misconduct" and "misuse of sex," how the precept—which comes out of a monastic culture of celibacy—is still relevant in our lives today, and why it's so difficult for us to be present with our pleasure. 

Nancy will lead a week-long discussion about sexual misconduct and the third Zen precept. Listen to my interview with Nancy below, then head over to the Tricycle Community Discussion and join the conversation!
