In this episode, Rabbi Rami speaks with Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison. Paley Ellison is the co-founder the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care, the first Zen-based organization to offer clinical chaplaincy training in America. Koshin is also the author of the new book Wholehearted: Slow Down, Help Out, Wake Up.
Many of us are in what Ellison calls Zombieland. Walking down the street, staring at screens, afraid to talk with one another or to make eye contact. Intimacy, he says, is taking responsibility, both for how we think and how we stay in the present to fully see each other.
Listen to the whole episode to hear Rabbi Rami’s conversation with this dynamic leader and teacher.
