Visiting Teachers: Dharma talk with Dr. Paula Arai and Rev. Jo Laurence
Dr Paula Arai and Rev. Jo Laurence will introduce and discuss ten Buddhist healing principles taken from Arai's book, Bringing Zen Home: The Healing Heart of Japanese Women's Rituals. Each healing principle articulates both the profound possibility and reality that healing and beauty are available to us in our everyday lives. Grounded in the context of Soto Zen, this healing occurs through an experience of interrelatedness in body and mind. Jo Laurence will expand upon the principles by placing them in the context of her work as a hospice and palliative care chaplain, emphasizing the potency of the Dharma to support and cultivate healing even in sickness and death.
