- I received a very sincere email the other day where the sender referred to my teaching.
- A different emailer had "When the student is ready..." as the Subject Line.
- In a casual conversation, a discussion about the upcoming October discussion group, I was asked if it was a classroom setting where one needed prior knowledge.
Even though I don't consider myself a big "T" teacher, I do know, from my experiences that what I'm presenting to you is unique to the Zen setting and thoroughly worthwhile.
Who Might Be My Audience?
- Zen practitioners in 12 Step recovery seeking different ways of experiencing the Steps
- 12 Step practitioners seeking out Zen as a possible path
- Zen practitioners looking outside the 12 Step group meeting arena
- Zen practitioners unsure if the 12 Steps are for them
- Can you add something new here?
It's when the koan appears from nowhere, revealing an aspect of one's life or with a Step that's never been experienced before. Call it going deeper, expanding horizons, or awakening, it's not something anyone has taught you. It's you being aware of that moment without the usual story-line in your head -- you and the universal truth -- which, after all, includes all things.
