“There’s a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in ”
In Japan, when an earthenware vessel is broken, it is usually glued to gold. When a person breaks down, it is possible and worthwhile to do similar things. The wisdom of the Buddha begins by acknowledging that we are all a little broken, and willing to look at the cracks and fractures in the eye, both accepting and loving. This course is an invitation to anyone willing to recognize that something is somehow cracked or broken. In the course we will try to bring the cracks and shards into the room and try to find together the ways to agree to be chipped and broken, and also, from time to time, to get together a bit and help a little to nurse each other.
To help us, we will also enlist the deep inspiration of the wisdom of past breakers and those who cherish breakages such as Buddha, Dogen Kagan, Yoshida Kanko, Quin Akko, Henry David Thoreau, Mahatma Gandhi, Leonard Cohen and others.
