Video – Everyday is a Good Day, Talk 4 from Full Moon, Clear Mirror Retreat

March 13, 2021

The full moon has a long history of being the clearest expression of awakening. For Dogen the moon represents Zazen, silent sitting, in each moment.

As a way of glancing at this moon, Valerie turns to a koan from a turbulent and deadly period in China’s history: Case 6 from the Blue Cliff Record, Every day is a Good Day. This story is addressed to each of us, a living koan that we have been taking up during the last three days of this retreat.
