Dharma Talk – Summertime and the Subject of Faith

Debra Seido Martin

This Sunday Seido will be talking about the seasonal changes we experience during summer practice where discipline loosens and the natural world presents itself in full color. What do we learn about ourselves during this time? What emerges in our relationship to zazen and what obstacles present themselves during a time of year typically marked by less structure?  Seido draws on the teachings from “Affirming Faith in Mind,” a 6th Century Chinese Chan poem chanted in many Zen temples, that offers us a way of practice regardless of the season based in a profound insight into Buddhist faith that invites us to lean into the fabric of our lives.

Listen to Seido’s talk on Summertime and the Subject of Faith.
