Podcast: "The Promise of Practice Right Here" with Koshin Paley Ellison


In his essay, Instructions for the Cook, Zen Master Dogen encourages us to use all the ingredients of our life. Koshin Paley Elliso explores Zen Master Dogen's discussion with a cook eight hundred years ago in China and how it is both relevant and encouraging for practicing here in New York City. How do we use the ingredients in our life right where we are? How do we cultivate a mind where nothing is hidden?
