- Thank you all for your input.
I am willing to "run" the sitting, though I am also a bit of a
novice. I agree that if there is no Roshi, and it is just a
layman's group, It should be kept simple. Soto would probably be
better. There is little sense in assigning koans when there is no
one there to receive the answers or perform dokuson.
So, I would guess there would be no stick and no "service". Though
a discussion period before and after could be good. A general
exhange of ideas as opposed to a sermon.
I would not assume to limit it only to japanese personas. It would
be way for people who normally practice to be able to practice with
a temporary sangha while at Pennsic.
Though, I guess to couch it as a class, there would need to be some
minor instruction at the beginning of the period.
To those who have expressed interest, would it be beneficial to
start a new yahoo group to hash this all out?
