UPDATED WEEKLY : to find the latest kusen, please scroll down the page
Since December 2020, Senior Teacher Guy Mokuho Mercier’s Saturday morning Zoom zazen sessions have been relayed from Lanau to the UK with simultaneous translation. Here, we provide English translations of his kusen, along with items from some sesshin.
His online teaching from January 2021 to August 2022 focused mainly on Great Master Keizan’s Zazen Yojinki. Those teachings can all be found in the kusen Archive
Since September 2022, his commentary has been on Advice for Practice written by Master Wanshi Shogaku, a Chinese Master (1091-1157). A translation of this text can be found in Taigen Dan Leighton’s book Cultivating the Empty Field.
You can link to Tenborin relayed events (most Saturday mornings at 07:50) on the Bristol Zen Dojo-Live page. The relay is via the Channel 2 audio player. On Saturday mornings where there is no relay broadcast, it is an option to join the French-language Tenborin Zoom session itself. Where possible on such occasions, a bilingual version of the kusen is posted on this page in advance of the Zoom itself.
