Wherever You Go, There You Are


The title of this talk is from the sub-title of a 1972 book called The Peoples’ Guide to Mexico. This book was unique among travel guides in pointing to being fully present and receptive to where you are.  A subtitle to the talk might be Shunryu Suzuki’s advice, “Nothing Extra.” It was prompted by Gyoshi’s experiences during three months of travel last fall in Nepal and Thailand. These travels marked the beginning of transition into a new life-phase for him – retirement.
