We’ve been reading Not Always So, a collection of talks by Zen teacher Shunryu Suzuki. In this week’s talk, called The Boss of Everything, he says “If someone asks me why I practice, I may answer that it is to have a well-oriented mind…The reason we practice meditation is to be the boss of everything. Wherever we are.”

This talk from Marc Lesser was recorded as part of a Mill Valley Zen weekly meditation meetup. Everyone is welcome to join the free weekly Wednesday meditation class and no prior meditation experience is necessary.
