Description: Resuming the discussion about the koan that tells us “ordinary mind is the way,” this talk from the second day of a weekend retreat examines how everyday experience is actually as vast and boundless as outer space. Many of us who have come to Zen as spiritual seekers will be surprised one day when we find that the Way we have been seeking is right here in front of us. It is us, and has been all along.

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