Last Sunday’s Teisho

If you attended last Sunday morning’s sitting online (via Zoom or the Center’s audio-livestream), you know that Roshi’s teisho did not broadcast. You can now listen to it here: Recognizing the Inevitable.

As a result of recent technology mishaps, we’re taking extra measures to ensure that teisho and other talks will broadcast successfully online every time, including the upcoming teisho by Sensei John Pulleyn on Sunday, September 19.
