We are given something new each moment, we are given a new life each moment, to be awake in. No giving up on us! Here, try again. Have another moment ... and another. Take a lifetime if you need it.
This video is a brief introduction to the teachings of Joan Sutherland, Roshi.
The mission of Cloud Dragon : The Joan Sutherland Dharma Works is to make the groundbreaking teachings of Joan Sutherland, Roshi widely available in written, audio, and video forms. Her work is a fresh imagining of the Zen koan tradition, rooted in its original understanding of all of life as a process of awakening. For Joan Sutherland, the first woman roshi in her lineage in the Americas, endarkenment is as essential as enlightenment to awakening, and much of her work is an exploration of the power held in the radiance of the dark.
The Dharma Works is the place to access Joan Sutherland's published writings, videos, and the audio archive of her talks, as well as a growing body of transcripts of those talks.
