The Unadjusted Step, Dharma Talk by Valerie Forstman

November 12, 2020

Valerie 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.
