Here’s a brief excerpt of the talk:

“We take refugee in the structural integrity of our practice, and that is a bodily thing. “I am being flooded but let me go into zazen posture, let me get that spine back up, let me start breathing. Let me remember how it feels to bow or to take care of something. I can barely move but I am going to take care of that plant with tremendous devotion.” All of these things support a mind being able to eventually feel safe and stable and trusting again.”
