Zenki Mary Mocine is lecturing for us and for Treeleaf.org.
Treeleaf Zendo is an all-digital practice place for Zen practitioners who cannot easily commute to a Zen Center due to health concerns, living in remote areas, or childcare, work and family needs, and seeks to provide Zazen sittings, retreats, discussion, interaction with a teacher, and all other activities of a Soto Zen Buddhist Sangha. Our focus is Shikantaza—“Just Sitting”—Zazen as instructed by the 13th Century Japanese Master, Eihei Dogen.
The topic is from an essay she wrote, “I Hate Donald Trump”. The essay, written in the divided times soon after the U.S. 2016 election, remains sadly relevant to the divisions and issues that continue today, in the U.S. and in many other countries. We are all frustrated by the state of society, and the “other guys” whose views and attitudes differ from our own (often in violent and quite ugly ways), no matter where we stand ourselves.
