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

December 20, 2021

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 Book of Equanimity, “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.
