      Allison presents a talk on another miscellaneous Koan,"Stop the fire across the river." Just like stopping the war within ourselves, where does the fire arise within and what form does it take. Passion, anger, demons, delusions all taking form within us. Allison demonstrates the possibility of working with the fire of anger through humor and diligent practice and attention to what flares up within the body. Grateful?
