“Sacrifice is a way to connect to what we give most value.”
How much are we willing to shift? This is the question posed by Sensei Koshin several weeks after protests broke out across the country and the world, highlighting racial and economic inequalities. Connecting to ancestors in the zen lineage and his own family members, Koshin shares stories of sacrifice that move us to see what is important in our own lives.
