In our fall 2023 koan series we’ll try something new, coordinating our conversations with the Cloud Dragon subscription talks to be distributed this September and October to subscribers of Cloud Dragon: the Joan Sutherland Dharma Works.

These four “Deep in the Mountain” talks, from the final retreat Joan Sutherland taught in 2013, take up key matters of practice. Organized around the description of three bodies—Nirmanakaya, Sambhogakaya, Dharmakaya—the talks weave their way among such topics as the sometimes troublesome self and how to engage it in the unfolding process of awakening; the labile, metamorphic aspect of reality often made palpable in dreams, poems, koans, and meditation; the radiance and timelessness of the vastness; and the unending process of interweaving all these into a life and world. In our sessions we’ll meet and engage with selected koans as they invoke and reveal the real life of these three bodies in and around us.  Each of us will offer two talks, but all three of us will participate in all sessions.

Here’s how to subscribe to CDDW:  https://joansutherlanddharmaworks.org/cgi-bin/dharma/page.cgi?g=Support%2FSubscribe%2Findex.html;d=1

 We strongly encourage subscribing, first as a way to support and thank Joan Sutherland, Roshi , and second, because talks are sent out monthly to subscribers.
