Abstract:

Zen is about questioning. Zen continuously questions. This does not necessarily involve finding answers, but finding a space in which to sustain questioning, being willing to remain present and upright in the middle of questions. And being able to do this enables live more flexibly, spaciously, and kindly with our not-knowing. Of course at times insights and responses appear, sometimes more frequently as we settle into the open spaciousness of meditation.
