The Big Sit starts today! If you're interested in challenging yourself to meditate every 90 days while enjoying the support of a community, this is the place for you! Thanks to all the bloggers who have kindly mentioned it:
- Joan Halifax Roshi (one of our Big Sit teachers!)
... and others. Thank you all, many bows.
We sat together in the Tricycle office today, not a rare occurrence by any means, but with a new determination to start a streak that will last 90 days! If you joined us, thank you, it's great to sit with you! If you haven't yet, please do --- you can join anytime. We have almost 3,000 members now, and they're having a blast on what one member called "a more dharmic Facbook."
Roshi Pat Enkyo O'Hara is giving weekly dharma talks on Dogen's Genjokoan. You can see the first here. You need to join the Community to watch, but it's easy, and you'll have fun, we promise. You're also free to embed the talk and spred the dharma on your blogs if you like, as below. We'll be posting a new talk by Enkyo Roshi every week throughout the 90 days.
