Due to technical difficulties, the talks from the first two nights of the 2017 New Year Sesshin, titled “Mind, Body, and Health” and “Karma,” were lost. The talks from the third and fourth nights, “Discipline” and “Enlightenment,” are available on this podcast. This is the talk from the final night.
