Wind-in-Grass is now over a year old. For a year, Wind-in-Grass has opened its doors, rang its bells and provided its sangha a place to meet and practice with the support and encouragement of each other. I could not be happier with the community that we have created and the group that gathers to practice together each week. But now Wind-in-Grass needs help. As we begin our second year, I want to ask anyone who sits with us regularly to volunteer with WiG. We have increased in size and scope and there are opportunities to deepen your practice through helping Wind-in-Grass.
Wind-in-Grass has a particular way in which it strives to meet the vows were recite each week. Our sangha is organized around these aims, and I have below listed them and given some examples of things we need done in each area. Please scan over these and think about what here might appeal to you to do and how you would like to help. Everyone will be asked to do something, no task will be too small. No one will be asked to do more than their life, interest or schedule can handle:
I vow to
Wake all beings in the world; [Outreach]
Give it a thought. I think one or more of these will appeal to you and your practice. You can email me directly, or speak up at the next meeting.
“A Course on Koans” is the delusion-riddled work of Chris Kufu (“Wind in the Void”) Wilson, who began practicing Zen in 1967. He regards Taizan Maezumi, Robert Aitken, and David Weinstein as his root teachers. Each of them pecked at his shell until he “completed” the never-ending koan curriculum of the Harada-Yasutani lineage.
