by Br. Anthony

Each spring, a Christian/Zen retreat is held at Gethsemani Abbey. Zen Master Dae Gak and Brother Anthony participate each year. These selections are from Br. Anthony's talk at the 1997 retreat.

This deepening of one's own tradition is the most important thing that I have experienced. You cannot know Zen . . .
