Here is the zen sangha that I was making the granola for the night before. We had 15 RSVP for a half day sit and 13 people show. It was a nice full house (so to speak) but not crowded. Nice to see the room being used in this way. Reminds me of the adage - if you build it, they will come. Our Sangha has been meeting in this space since 2004. Washington DC is a very transient place but we seem to have a nice cross section of people; older and youngish, various countries of origin and economic spheres. Something is working in this space and community supporting the dharma.
