I spent the past week on retreat with Genpo Roshi and four teachers in his lineage. We worked with the stages of awakening through use of the Big Mind process for six hours a day. Quite an experience. This week I will try to convey some of what was a deeply clarifying experience for me.
Also, I'll be discussing The Boulder Mountain Zendo's for leasing space for the City Center. We intend to offer a regular sitting practice, daisan (interviews with a teacher), and talks, as well as Zazenkai (day long sittings) and other programs. Both Diane and I will be participating as teachers in this facility. This is a big step for us, for The Boulder Mountain Zendo, and for all of you.
