"DreamMaking" connects to Dogen's wholehearted expression of dream, in which horizons and possibilities of the human/cosmic situation are opened and deepened to express balance andintimacy.

(Making a dream, within a dream)


In DreamMaking, human fallibility (amid delusion/dream) and human perfectability (beyond delusion/dream) entwine as foci of the process of calibration and the state of equilibrium. From this nondual perspective, one lives amid/beyond dream by expounding/making a dream within a dream, in and through the reconstructive and dynamic function of emptiness, without blurring the differences between duality and nonduality.
