“No mystic cry or special experience will help you until you have the Great Matter of your own life constantly before you and in the hands of your being.” How can we transform our everyday lives into the path of awakening? What can we, as Buddhist practitioners, find in The Great Matter of the everyday? In this four-week course, we will explore Buddhist themes through lecture, writing, and discussion, meeting the material of our lives through the teachings. Come prepared to write, to speak, to listen, and to share. In the words of our Zen ancestor, Lao Tzu, “Look well to this day, for this is life; the very life of life.”
