Monday, Nov. 11th
Meditation & Talk with Amy Robinson


Zen and the Grammar of Animacy

The koan:
Are dolphins really as smart as people think they are?

Is this a metaphysical question, about the way we should or should not think about dolphins in particular, or animals in general, or something bigger than that? Is there even an answer?

What happens when I stop swishing my tail and swimming about, looking for an answer, and just sit with not-knowing? What happens when I let myself be me? What happens when I allow the world to be filled with a wondrous “grammar of animacy”?

Come meditate with this quirky koan, and feel your way into the marvels of planetary life.
