LATEST NEWS & EVENTS
Dear Sangha and Friends, Our culture, the planet itself, seem now to be at a tipping point -- a time of crisis on so many levels, when the deep longing for healing simply must be brought more fully to light. In this time of great need, we also have an unparalleled opportunity to make available to the wider world the Buddha’s teachings of wisdom and compassion, and the transformative practice of Zen..
Yes, enough people have responded positively to our earlier stick-in-the-water inquiry to inspire us to jump in and make it happen again this year. As mentioned in the last email, this year's ceremonies and celebrations will begin earlier and will be a bit simpler and briefer than our usual NYE midnightmarathons...

WINDHORSE ZEN COMMUNITY PROVIDES:
Articles, Talks, and Webinars
Meditation Intensives & Workshops
On-going Practice Schedule
Supportive Dharma Connections
Compassionate Action in the World
Rooted in the ancient Blue Ridge Mountains just outside of Asheville, NC, Windhorse Zen Community is a group of people who come together to practice Zen, to wake up to the deepest truth of the Buddha’s teaching and embody it in the context of daily activities and relationships.
THE TEACHERS AT WINDHORSE
Lawson Sachter and Sunya Kjolhede were ordained and sanctioned to teach by Roshi Philip Kapleau in the 1990’s. The training at Windhorse blends the strengths of both the Rinzai and Soto schools of Zen within a Western context, using breath, open awareness, and koan inquiry practices.
We also work with unconscious forces that deep practice may bring to the surface – both those that are creative and inspiring, as well as those that stir up difficult mindstates that may undermine one’s dharma work.
