“Sacred space is where you can be yourself. And by that I mean you can feel what’s going on inside, and it’s ok to do that. And you don’t have to worry so much about your performance. What it looks like to everyone else… And you can study and see what you can find out - see what you notice - see what makes sense to you - carefully observing how things appear and disappear - and how there doesn’t seem to be anything you can count on - and yet - given that there’s nothing you can count on, there’s the possibility of being at home in your own body, in your own mind, and in this place and this time.
One of our most well known ancestors, Dogen, says when you find your place where you are - practice occurs - and you actualize the fundamental point."
