Senior Student Kokyo starts out this talk with a little Dharma from the play “Of Mice and Men.” She then relates an experience of disapproval from a stranger on a train, as she gave money to someone begging. Kokyo sees a deep connection and mutual exchange going on all around us all the time. Gravity, breath, and even the wood of the floor that we sit and stand on becomes part of us. She asks can we take care of each other, our environment, and our country with gentleness, love and without judgement. Recorded June 10, 2018.
