Update: From http://surfire2008.wordpress.com/
Someone just told me this morning that Tassajara, in CA—one of the first, greatest Buddhist retreat centers, founded by Suzuki Roshi, (author of one of the greatest “beginner’s” Buddhist books ever)—is in danger.
Read update here. Excerpt: “Steph Wenderski, a 30-year-old native of Minnesota who has lived at the monastery for two years, admitted to occasional bouts of fear. But those periods, she said, invariably gave way to calm.
“You don’t have much time to think about what could be coming,” she said.
Local authorities asked that those staying behind in this spiritual center — a series of rustic wood and stone buildings in a remote canyon 14 miles up a roller-coaster dirt road from the nearest pavement — provide the names of their dentists for identification purposes.”
