Upaya Zen Center's Dharma Podcast

Reviews For Upaya Zen Center's Dharma Podcast

this is one of my favorite zen podcasts. i love the meditation bowl at the beginning of each episode!
This podcast has been wonderfully insightful for me. I would recommend it to anyone, whether they are a practicing Buddhist or not. Roshi Joan is an excellent teacher. Just hearing the tone of her voice when she speaks is enough to set a pleasant mood to my day.
Wow what a excellent treasure trove of good to great dharma talks. I wish they would open up ther whole archive. Great tool for self retreats or introducing oneself to real dharma not pop dharma. I plan to visit upaya website and give dana. Thank you Upaya center, thank you.
Truly educational and enlightening.
When you live far from any teachers, podcast dharma talks are fantastic. To find a clear, wise, funny, refreshing teacher like Joan is wonderful. I have listened to a lot and these are among the best. From major life issues to how to live thru a sesshin, it is all great. The bells and gongs are a nice touch, as are the detailed info notes. I would only suggest they pass a microphone to their audience when they ask questions (like audiodharma does) so we can hear them better.
Roshi Joan has a way of making so very clear those things that are not easily clarified. Having attended one of her Dharma talks, and then (very excitedly) finding she now has a podcast, I was very gratified to hear the same clarity, the same ability to paint a picture and place you directly into the middle of it, and the courageous ability to tackle the difficult issues unabashedly and unapologetically. Kudos!!
