Good to be in touch with all of you again following Rohatsu sesshin. It was a beautiful experience, capped off by the 70 of us who sat Rohatsu going outside early on the dawn of December 8 to watch the morning star rise over the mountains just outside of Santa Fe. What a moment!
Here’s an interesting announcement that recently came to my attention. In the coming year, the Buddhist Peace Fellowship is co-sponsoring a “Dharma in Action Fellowship” with the Fellowship of Reconciliation. From the BPF website:
The Buddhist Peace Fellowship is looking for a Buddhist activist to work for peace in Colombia through the Dharma in Action Fellowship (DIAF). The DIAF Fellow will be placed with the Fellowship of Reconciliation’s peace team to provide nonviolent protective accompaniment to threatened peace activists in Colombia, while exploring the relationship between Buddhism and activism.
Applications are due January 3, 2011!
More details are available from BPF here.
