The June practice week at Tassajara, the mountain monastery in California which opens its doors to sincere visitors in the summer, was a wonderful experience for our intrepid group of 14. We arrived on Monday June 15, and shared the morning schedule of meditation, followed by work, with the monks and residents of the monastery for 5 days. In the afternoon, our schedule was loose; we hiked, participated in classes and discussions, swam in the stream or at the pool, and finished with a dinner with guests, followed by evening zazen or a dharma event. On Saturday June 15, we drove over the mountain and returned to our various homes, refreshed and invigorated. Sangha Week allowed our Houston sangha (along with friends from around the country) to slowly melt into the Tassajara Sangha, becoming one sangha, practicing together.
