We sometimes call zazen “choiceless awareness.” This means that in zazen we don’t attempt to regulate what comes into awareness; we just let what arises arise.

Unlike the traditional, patriarchal accounts, these stories re-frame Buddhism’s origins as inclusive of women and the sacred feminine, valorizing women’s spiritual lives and potential. Together these women’s stories form the…
