I meditate, "but to a degree. I just want everyone to be free. But if you think I'm gonna let Barry Goldwater move in next door and marry my daughter, you're crazy. I wouldn't do it for all the farms in Cuba."

Are you Willing to Attend Class fairly Consistently in the beginning weeks, to strongly develop your sitting meditation ? To comprehend an ancient, yet rebellious, iconoclastic teaching in a liberal, modern format - directly applied to your "Self"?


Do you know what Group Meditation always offers ? - it's the very necessary deeper "immersion-time experiences" so often missing in somewhat shorter 'lite' meditation sittings. Sit a bit longer, see much deeper, see with more clarty, feel better.


Did'ya know that Buddhism is really NOT a 'religion' ? Buddha just pointed a Way, a Path to try. No promises. No sin, just our ordinary, un-aware, un-kind ego-mind... Be willing to encounter an Atheistic 'Buddhism' without ANY 'Beliefs' whatsoever !

That's the idea. American freestyle, is what I currently call it.

QUESTION: "Does a Cow have Buddha Nature" ?... ANSWER: "Mooo" ! ! ! ( 'Mu' means 'Nothing' in ancient Japanese )
