30 Poems in 30 Days and a Dharma Hall

I'm still working on my next sitting tool which is a custom support that I've been designing to help many people find their neutral sitting position.

I hope to have it assembled later this week so I can start to use it and describe it in next week's blog. In the mean time, I have been using a mock-up created by attaching different strips of fabric to my tacky (but friendly) orange pillow shown in earlier posts.

Path to a Dharma Hall
 My work on this meditation tool has been delayed because I recently volunteered to help my sangha as it takes on the project of funding and building a Dharma Hall. This opportunity seemed like a new path to explore as part of my practice.  In preparing to bring this into my practice I read a great book that is called "Zen Architecture: The Building Process as Practice" which I reviewed on the Zen Book Reviews page of the blog.

 I'm also going to participate in the 30 Poems in 30 Days program associated with a sister Zen group in Portland, Oregon so some of my April posts are likely to be poems.
