Learning to swim

I am very happy to see the Ino’s Blog up and running again. I was helping Caitlin with some details of the job in my first week back from Tassajara, and she outlined an idea for a post that very neatly encapsulated a ceremonial life in an urban temple (though that one has not appeared yet). As for today’s post, I would say that really no-one can teach you how to swim, or to ride a bike – or practice zen. Instructions will only take you so far; you have to manifest it in your own body.
