This talk was given during a family retreat at Zen Mountain Monastery. Shugen Sensei reflects on how teachers have to integrate the challenges of modernity with the power of the tradition. Just as a parent knows that the child's first step contains the totality of walking, each step along the spiritual path is both one step of many and an embodiment of the whole journey.
