Teachings

The first set of teachings are informal in-the-moment reflections on a variety of practice related topics offered by Peter after Wednesday evening zazen on Salt Spring Island. They were recorded starting in 2008, and appear here by title, but not in chronological order. The link to the talk appears beneath the title.

Further down the page you may select some of the more formal talks given at sesshin over the years.

For those of you who listen to these teachings and offer a donation, please know that your generosity helps to make these talks available; we thank you for your kind contribution.




If the teaching you’ve selected is on the quiet side, you may like to use ear buds or head phones.
