One month after inaugurating Sunday practice, we needed to add more cushions to the zendo this morning to accommodate everyone. One practitioner commented, “Sunday practice is huge for us. My wife and I have been here more in the past month than in the previous five years!”
Today we also held the first of our first-Sunday workdays. After a delicious potluck lunch, six sangha members pitched in to move furniture, organize shelves, add no-slip strips to the back stairs, prepare new materials for addition to the library, and do some general cleaning. A gratifying amount was accomplished, and practitioners had the opportunity to eat, work and practice together.
Our next potluck and workday is March 4. Please join us!
