Transformation By Way Of Snails

Today we saved snails. And pigeons, too. We trekked up to a hidden hillside that I had never noticed just beside Dhagpo, rife with lupines and wild grasses, Technicolor in contrast with the sky’s somber tones.

Helping Each Other Out: A First Round of Life Release Practice

Today we saved lives. Over one hundred people came out to the vegetable field below Dhagpo to set free over one thousand redworms. Between the rows of recently plowed earth, people stood, holding wire-bound prayer books printed especially for this occasion, and those that will follow.

40 Years Or No, Gratitude Abides

40 Years or No, Gratitude Abides

When we began reflecting on Dhagpo’s 40th anniversary, anything was possible, so I’ll spare you the most farfetched ideas we came up with.

Dhagpo’s 40th Anniversary: A Year for the Three Times

We begin on Losar, the Lunar New Year. This day marks the entry into the Year of Wood Goat, and the beginning of Dhagpo’s 40th anniversary. This year is bigger than itself. It is the moment when the past and future meet, when we consider how we will move forward and honor the history […]
