“Negative judgements of practiceing students at G.G.F.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2005

I was at Green Gulch Farm for the Fall Practice Periode of 2002. While I was there I was told to be a certain way or not this way. Before I ever went to Zen Center I was told by Senior Dharma Teachers at Zen center that we are all perfect just where we are but that the intensity of our own desire to wake up is the important thing. Now years later when I desired to return to practice they tell me that we don't want you. We feel due to how you behaved while you were here that you need psyc. help. I am a collage graduate and a seeker of truth and understanding. I just don't feel that they truly want to realy help any one Wake up! For I will continue on my ownlike the Buddha and I will reach the other shore but not from the help of anyone at Zen Center.

Stayed August 2002
