I came across this vision statement on the Spirit Rock website published as an article in the Summer 2007 edition of Buddhadharma. It’s entitled “This Fantastic Unfolding Experiment”. I think the title covers a lot. It’s exciting to be a witness and a participant in a tiny way to this continuing arrival of Buddhism to the West. The article also has some great pictures of the early days for Jack and Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg and company. I hope the link works for you!
