Thanks for a perfect beginning

Our opening night last week still seems like a dream. It was a perfect evening, from the dedication ceremony to Norman Fischer’s great talk and discussion with participants to the festive party and cleanup that followed.

I am particularly grateful to my teacher, Roshi Catherine Genno Pagès, for her presence and for her tireless devotion to her students and the practice all these years. Also many thanks to Norman for joining us and offering his words. Thank you to all those who came to celebrate with us – we couldn’t have done it without you! And to those who left donations to help us plant and cultivate these new Wild Flower seeds.

Finally (last but not at all least), I offer deep bows of gratitude to the members of Wild Flower Sangha for their diligent practice, enthusiasm and willingness to make the leap and come along with me on this truly wild adventure!
