Big Apples

Yesterday I took the train in to NYC for a mini Zen retreat with my Dharma brothers, Lawrence Do'an Grecco and Sergio Hyeonmin Prajna. The retreat was held at the Interdependence Project. It's been a while since I have sat for more than 25 minutes at a time, and my knees were a little stiff and creaky. But like riding a bike or swimming, I slid back into form easily enough.

In the afternoon, Lawrence and I performed a ceremony empowering Sergio as a Dharma Holder or apprentice teacher in the Five Mountain Zen Order. I am very happy for Sergio, and excited for his next step on the Dharma path.  Congratulations my friend, may you plant many Dharma seeds. Let the fruit grow!
