Dharmatalk: The Unadjusted Step

March 1, 2022

The unadjusted step is a way of naming this moment.  

Valerie Forstman

Description: Valerie Forstman offers this post-election talk and acknowledges our deeply divided nation. She introduces the taoist concept of the unadjusted step – stay where you are and don’t move, as a way to face this moment. Despite our division, separation doesn’t hold well. Valerie also explores the famous koan about Master Baa who is near death – Sun Faced Buddha, Moon Faced Buddha.

And, here’s a link to our YouTube video of this talk.
