The Windhorse Comprehensive Campaign, announced at KCC’s annual sangha meeting, September 21, 2013, seeks over the next three years to raise funds:
to complete the Ser Chö Ösel Ling long retreat facility
to enable KCC’s move to a larger urban center
to gradually increase KCC’s general fund to support these efforts
The Windhorse Campaign is off to a wonderful start! One extraordinarily generous donor has already committed $100,000 to a new urban center, and two others have offered $10,000 each to match new and increased contributions to KCC.
Zhinay, or Calm Abiding, will be taught during the New Year Retreat. The practice is the essential underpinning of all other meditation practices. While our minds are busy and distracted by a myriad of disconnected thoughts, feelings, and emotions, it is not possible to deeply engage the meditation methods which could lead us to the intended result of directly recognizing the nature of mind. Zhinay is a direct method for learning to let the mind rest naturally, free of our commitment to the tyranny of these distractions. This short, two day retreat will provide participants an opportunity to learn how to meditate using a few of the many methods available, to explore in open discussion how we can carry this meditation into our daily affairs and, vice versa, our daily affairs into our meditation. In short, we will take this opportunity to explore how we can integrate our spiritual path into the rest of our life, laying the ground for them to become completely inseparable.
