Whatever happened to the plan for a meet-up in California or Wales or wherever?

Hi Carol
There is a meet up being planned by Tom Kirwan,next year,in Shropshire I think.
For information,I believe Kozan is following the progress of this,and there is a Facebook link.

And how are you?

I am thinking of you.

All the best

Carol and Maizie, thank you both for your comments. And my apologies for my (all too typical) delay in response!

Tom Kirwan is indeed leading the organization for a lay sangha weekend gathering in the UK on March 27th and 28th, 2015. Tom has been away for the last two weeks, so ongoing planning has slowed down a bit.

Enida and I have been reflecting on the possibilities for a US counterpart, which we are both enthusiastic about.

The dilemma, and one which everyone here can help all of us with, is the question about what form such a gathering might best take for those of us in the western hemisphere!

Enida and I would be quite happy with a gathering for both former and current OBC practitioners, simultaneously. Given our perspectives, we don't seem to see any contradiction in this!

At the same time, I think that we both fully appreciate the fact that some people may only want a reunion of former members, and some may only want a gathering of current practitioners.

Because I/we don't want to short change either group, I would tend to propose a default approach of two events:

1. A reunion.
2. A gathering.

If they can be merged, all the better (IMO).
