Dosho Port's Vine of Obstacles Distance Zen

Dosho Port's Vine of Obstacles Distance Zen

Postby Pedestrian on Tue Apr 02, 2013 3:48 pm

Dosho Port has started Vine of Obstacles Zen, which he describes as follows:

This post-traditional Zen training is designed for practitioners living at home who yearn to realize and actualize the great matter of birth and death. “Vine of Obstacles” acknowledges the difficulty of following through with our practice aspirations in the midst of daily life and the truth that this very bind can be a dharma gate.

This program is intended to support you in this very entanglement.

Vine of Obstacles Zen requires commitment to ongoing awakening and the capacity to carry out daily practice alone and regularly engage with Dosho via Skype and email.

Our primary basis for practicing enlightenment is daily zazen (integrating just-sitting and koan Zen), study, and engagement in the world.

Here's another blog post about the endeavor, which includes some "new twists" in the vine, and here's James Ford's endorsement.

Looks pretty fascinating to me. I'd love to hear people's responses to it.
