This talk continues Shohaku Okumura Roshi's commentary on the modern classic Opening The Hand of Thought written by his teacher Kosho Uchiyama Roshi.  Okumura Roshi discusses how we wake up in our zazen practice. An excerpt: "We simply repeat waking up from thinking or sleeping.  That’s all we do.  So there’s no goal.  The point is just to be, right now, right here.  Right now right here is just sitting.  So whenever we find we deviate from just sitting we return to here and now and just sit.  There’s no goal, nowhere to go."  It was originally given at Sanshinji in Bloomington, IN on July 18, 2010.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
