Effortless Effort

What exactly are we doing in zazen meditation? What kind of effort is necessary? This talk addresses the shift we are inviting when we sit still, and it explores three zazen instructions and how they are interrelated:

  1.  Just sit.
  2.  Think not-thinking.
  3.  Counting the breath.
