In this talk, Roshi follows the themes of our 2019 Urban Sesshin organized by our practice leader Gessho: creative attention, awareness and focus – narrow and wide. Roshi quotes Dogen, Ryokan, Muso Soseki, and Sid Corman. We can’t grasp attention, focus and awareness. So how do we learn to pay attention? Listen.
