BOUNDLESS INTIMACY: The Eye And Treasury Of Core-Self
by Andrew Shugyo Daijo Bonnici, Ph.D.
Excerpt from Chapter 1 – “Abiding In Core-Self – Earth Dwellers”:
To embody the integrity of Zen life is to passionately live from the vitality of our hara and the vibrancy of our bio-energetic core. In our Way, we practice felt intimacy with our hara and our bio-energetic core by daily sitting in zazen-only. When we just sit in zazen-only, we simply linger with ease and joy in the sensuality of our hara and the vibrant wakefulness of our visceral core. To linger in the hara and the bio-energetic core of our lower abdomen is to embody a brilliant stillness, a silent illumination, a deep composure, and a grounded integrity that is far beyond the seated form of zazen-only.
