Ji Hyang Padma
has taught Zen for 20 years, 15 of these as a monastic in the Korean Zen tradition. She is the Director of Spirituality and Education Programs at Wellesley College. She is the author of Living the Seasons: Zen Practices for Transformative Times.
How can we work creatively with the energies of these transformative times, to discover a creative and centered path to our heart's sure release? Welcoming the energies of change with mindful awareness, we can respond rather than react, and thus develop resiliency and create that life which is our path with heart. This is tangible: it begins with mindfulness practice, through which we return to our own luminous awareness, like clear water.
