As I close up my last days as a resident of Upaya, I reflect on the past year and some of the highlights of living in a practice community: overnight trips with fellow residents to explore the beauty of New Mexico, deep silence sitting sesshin, getting to know myself and others through council and “meditative …

This year, to mark Roshi’s birthday, we are asking you to celebrate her remarkable lifelong and ongoing commitment to the Dharma by making a generous donation to Roshi Joan’s 73rd Birthday Scholarship Fund. The practice of Dana—generosity—is at the very heart of Upaya, and 100% of what you give will be dedicated to scholarships for others to be able to attend one of our amazing programs. Please click on the link, below, to go right to our online giving page.
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, Roshi!

Upaya Zen Center is doing a fund raising campaign so that we may send small solar lamps to Nepal with our annual Nomad’s Clinic. We are asking that you donate, and even more importantly, that you please post this link on your Facebook page, or send it out in emails to your friends. The campaign has been up and running for a week. There were many donations in the first few days, but now it has stalled. We need your help to get the word out: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bringing-light-to-nepal-little-sun-solar-lights#/story
Little Sun solar lights will bring much needed safe and healthy light to earthquake stricken Nepal, | Crowdfunding is a democratic way to support the fundraising needs of your community. Make a contribution today!

Joshin reads from Dogen the passage that gives this sesshin its theme (“circle of the way”), and brings it fleshily to life. In the circle of the way, Dogen says, there is no gap between practice and enlightenment; between the  path — the willingness to be unconditionally, nakedly alive just now — and discovery.
