Cybersanghas – Do They Work?

My contribution to Buddhadharma: The Practitioner’s Quarterly, Spring 2014, is now out and available. Click here for a bit of a tease. And subscribe if you’d like the whole piece. There’s also an interesting looking piece on the teacher-student relationship and with Koun Franz now involved with Buddhadharma, I’m expecting some really good things from this journal.

By the way, my “balanced view” about cybersanghas is creating a bit of a stir in our Vine of Obstacles: Online Support for Zen Training community. Some practitioners think I was too negative.

We are having an awfully good time together.
