Ancient Ox Herding Pictures Meditation

Come along on a journey of discovery as you listen to Susan Austin-Crumpton give a series of Kabbalistic interpretations and audio meditations on a series of ten "ox pictures."  These are works of art from the ancient Buddhist tradition, and each of the ten pictures is accompanied by a poem. The series of poems gives a unique perspective on issues that we still deal with today, such as longing to feel connected to something meaningful and to be able to live in a state of self-realization.  Narration is provided by Estuary staff member Susan Beyler.

Begin by listening to the introduction.
