Don’t turn away
Subhana focuses on the healing capacity to be with, respond and alleviate the pain and suffering in our lives. Rather than turning away from the pain and disavowing the; hurt, shame, fear, anger, grief, we can turn towards these feelings with the healing power of compassion. We take up a wonderful Case 89 in the Blue Cliff Record of Kannon Bodhisattvas many hands & eyes as a deep embodied model for an engaged compassionate action in the world based on our understanding of inter-connectedness and oneness.
This teisho by Subhana Barzaghi was given at the Autumn sesshin in 2022
