Series 2 - Class 6 Notes April 13, 2022

Hi Friends,

In the next Saturday's set of koans we shall enquire into emptiness. I think of it as  both a metaphor and an experience. 
Sometimes it is described as "1,000 miles of snow," or "a black cat at midnight," other times it is indicated by attitudes falling away, for example—"I'm not so defensive," or "I don't need to placate people" or "I no longer need to refer everything to my childhood."  

Do you have ideas or experiences of emptiness you would be willing to share with me?

I'm interested what it is for you,
