Rejoicing and delighting in the black shaggy dog

In her first talk as SSZ's new resident teacher, Allison shares with us stories of her own sense of unworthiness and shame that have been crippling for her at times.  With laughter and tenderness, she helps us see our own suffering as illuminating a deep and subtle connection between us.

As Dogen once wondered marvelling at how a school of fish acts as one being, perhaps only a Buddha can see the invisible connection between them that allows each fish to act in unison.
