Nina Snow - On Food and Cooking

“When steaming rice regard the pot as your own head. When washing rice, know that the water is your own life.” - Dogen

Nina Snow leads us in a discussion on everyone’s favorite point of practice - food! She discusses her experience with formal oryoki meals in Zen monasteries, working in the tense stillness of Zen kitchens, and offers up a reading from Okumura on our meal chant and considering every aspect of our food and ourselves with each chop and bite.
