Waking to the World, Illness and All: Dharma Talk with Valerie Forstman (Video)

January 10, 2022

Valerie begins this talk with a look at palindromes as a cipher for Zen’s gateless-gate. She then takes up case 83 of the BOE, “Dogo’s Nursing the Ill,” as a pointer to what the masters call “that matter” and to finding our deepest wellbeing right in this midst of this broken world.
