Whistling Past The Graveyard
With Revs. Paco Lugoviña and Daiken Nelson

Two of the central Buddhist beliefs are Impermanence and our own demise—the Great Matter of Life & Death. How do we use those two tenets to guide us: to fuel & fire our Practice. Some examples from Zen history & stories will guide a discussion on practical application of this inspirational perspective.
