New Year’s Eve at the Hazy Moon (Video)
New Year’s Eve is a festive affair at the Hazy Moon. Witness the revolving of the sutras as the abbot taps each member of the congregation on the shoulder while the chanting reaches a dramatic crescendo.
Tom Campbell, a professional physicist, has worked on some of the most complex military systems in the U.S. arsenal. Since the early 1970s, he has also been at the forefront of a movement to shift the study of consciousness from the periphery to the center of modern scientific inquiry. His “theory of everything,” which he develops at length in his book “My Big TOE”, encompasses not just the foundation of individual experience but also phenomena like spiritual healing and remote viewing.
Hazy Moon sangha member and journalist Nick Shindo Street interviews the author of Biocentrism, a book that Nyogen Roshi describes as mirroring his experiences in the practice of zazen as closely as anything he has encountered in a modern writer.
Listen to Hazy Moon Student Talks and hear the refreshing clarity of a living Zen practice:
Michael Isshin Spiller Affirmations (14:50)
“When he began talking about affirmation practice, I told Nyogen, this is so long overdue for me personally. This habit of negative thinking of mine is poison, and I have been poisoning myself with it for years.”
Kujaku “Recovering Hippie Catholic Zen” (12:16)
“I do have a real appreciation of Christ as a teacher, so I guess that would make me a Catholic Buddhist… In my view Christ was not unlike Buddha, and was not perhaps the savior in the way we think of him, but an enlightened teacher.”
