Woke up in LA this morning, after spending a soul-soothing weekend away in San Francisco with my sister. One of the highlights was our visit to the Green Gulch Farm/Zen Center for a Dharma talk and stroll through the garden (i wasn’t kidding about soul-soothing part). We admired the thriving rhubarb, lettuces, irises, roses and ranunculus before heading inside the Green Dragon Temple and getting our minds blown by some simple Buddhist ideas. After the talk, everyone gathered outside for herbal tea and lemon ginger muffins. Como se dice “cozy”?
