"Sitting touches every aspect of our lives; yet when we forget one thing, we have forgotten everything. Without it, nothing else works. It's hard to give it a name. We might call it wonder. When we forget the wonder of that which we encounter, then we're in trouble; our lives don't work." --Joko BeckSaturday Zen: Sat Sep 1, 10:00 - 11:45am
