Everyday a Good Day, Valerie Forstman

February 18, 2023

Speaking in the wake of multiple mass shootings, Valerie turns to Unmon (Yunmen) and his living koan, “Every Day is a Good Day.” The talk begins and ends in music – the “grant us peace” from a chorus performing while masked to the thunderous silence of a typhoon’s downpour on a small teahouse in Japan, an awakening moment. In between, the talk explores the fulcrum experience that plunges us into the heart of this broken world and gives us to say ‘good’: good with no opposite
