Whole Life Offering

Whole Life Offering with Sensei Bonnie Myotai Treace


What is It? In this 4-part video teaching, Zen teacher Bonnie Myotai Treace invites you to the Gristmill for a series of subtle koans and a cup of tea. Explore the nature of genuine offering, of attention, and the koan of water as a daily practice. Known for her poetic and innovative presentation of the dharma, Myotai Sensei's encouragment is to make a "whole life offering," moment by moment, to the mill of transformation. Water bowls for practice are available for order, and supplementary reading will be included. (July 2010) Not yet a Sustaining Member? Sign up here.

Green Meditation

Green Meditation: Recover Your Natural Balance

Do you get enough sleep? Former Zen monk Clark Strand would probably argue that you don’t—and that people haven’t since the invention of the light bulb. With his 4-part video teaching on "green meditation" Strand takes us back to the way we were meant to sleep and shows us how. Audio Q&A and discussion forum. (Mar. 2010) Not yet a Sustaining Member?
