Going Into Rohatsu… Odds and Ends

Posted on

Starting tonight I’ll be sitting Rohatsu sesshin at Upaya Zen Center, so I’m going to pull myself away from the computer screen for the next eight days. I don’t know how I’ll manage it, but I’m sure that will be good for me. I’m remembering back to last year and how wonderful it was to unplug for a week… and I wrote about that experience here on The Jizo Chronicles.

Before I leave you for a week, a couple of things —

  • Congratulations to Renata Golden, who is the winner of the book Not Turning Away in the Great Jizo Book Giveaway. And thanks to all who left comments to enter. Maybe we’ll do this again with another book soon.
  • I just launched a new blog called The Liberated Life Project. It’s a sort of “stealth dharma” blog where I share insights and practices to help people live a more awakened life. I hope you’ll visit the site and share it with friends who you think might enjoy it.

Okay, that’s it… off to the cushion! May all of you have a peaceful week.


About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
