A whole book – read for you, chapter after chapter!
Monika Winkelmann is reading the Book “What is Zen – Plain Talk by a Beginner‘s Mind“, written by Norman Fischer and Susan Moon, chapter by chapter, each one in YouTube Format. The project was planned as an interactive study-project, but at least the first readings were just life-streamed and some listened to it.
Relax and close your eyes. Or cut the vegetables or whatever mechanical work can be well combined with some intense listening: Enjoy the smart questions, asked by Susan Moon and Norman Fischer’s clear and yet down-to-earth-answers, you were perhaps waiting for or you need some deepening of your understanding.
Susan Moon Sensei is book-author, leading writing workshops, writer and was an editor.
Norman Fischer Roshi is the former Abbot of San Francisco Zen Center, founder of everdayzen foundation (www.everydayzen.org), co-founder of Makor-Or, a Jewish Meditation Center. He is poet and book-author.
Monika Winkelmann is lay-ordained (Jukai) in the Zen Peacemaker Order and in Rinzai-Lineage. Studying with everydayzen Sangha. Meditation-teacher, poetry-therapist.
