Scenes from an extraordinary retreat with two Zen masters.
In Autumn 2012, Zen koan masters John Tarrant and Joan Sutherland came together to converse about The Blue Cliff Record, the first great collection of koans, now almost 1,000 years old. It’s a text filled with stories that change you. We are thrilled to be able to offer this DVD record of the event—a chance to witness their collaboration in a set of live conversations about Zen, koans, and enlightenment.
The weekend captured in this DVD represents a formative moment in the transformation of koan work. Tarrant and Sutherland have translated these old, familiar koans using fresh, modern, yet faithful language that opens up the material in new ways. This is a chance to hear them think and work and talk through the literature of awakening.
Tarrant and Sutherland’s innovative and effective teachings, and their emphasis on building a culture for the transformation of heart and mind, have opened new paths for living the practice of Zen.
Includes: Two dual-layer DVDs, beautifully packaged and printed, with three hours of material from four days of talks.
CDDW subscribers can purchase the DVDs for $50. Please email email@example.com.
