At our monthly retreats (zazenkais) and bi-annual sesshins, Jack Duffy Roshi gives teishos, which are formal talks thought of as presentations of dharma. Teachers Lee Shields and Madelon Bolling, and other Three Treasures Sangha members, give talks at our monthly retreats.

Talk 6 was lost to technical gremlins.

2009 at Walking Rain Sesshin
The talks focus on the Shodoka “Song of Realizing the Way”. These words were offered as teisho (a Dharma talk) during the sesshin but the recordings were damaged so Jack kindly re-gave the talks in a slightly different context at the “Golden Wind” retreat in Spokane winter of 2009. Other talks in this series will be post here as they become available.
