To Refrain may be the Greatest gift

As the year draws to a close, our culture often implies we should be doing more and giving more and being more than we would otherwise be. During this week’s Sangha meeting, Payton explored how non-doing and refraining from actions can be just as powerful a practice and may even have a larger effect than we would think.

He played a talk by Kate Munding from just 10 days ago entitled “Letting Go Of Busyness”. That talk is available here: https://dharmaseed.org/teacher/305/talk/59894/

The inspiration for this talk came from a talk by Gaelyn Godwin Roshi entitled “Refrain From Evil” from December 25, 2016. That talk is here:
