Buddhadharma : Fall 2011
begin to make breakthroughs more quickly than if we remain in isolation. The same goes for the question of depth and breadth: which do you emphasize more, deep prac- tice for a few or some practice for a larger number? How do you balance the broad and the deep? Likewise, how much do you conserve and how much do you innovate. How do you include young people more and empower them. What about the growth of secular mindfulness? And, as Ken says, how we develop good models for financially sup- porting teachers and practice communities is also of prime importance. Gina Sharpe: I would like to add that “secu- lar dharma” is a widespread phenomenon. Dharma is becoming so secular in so many ways, and we need to discuss that in much greater depth. I’m not so sure that we gave that enough of an airing at the conference. Buddhadharma: Since the terms “secular dharma” and “mindful society” have come up, let’s talk about concerns in those areas. Ken mcLeod: I’ve had conversations with Ste- phen Batchelor, who has talked about secu- lar dharma or secular Buddhism, and I don’t have a clear idea of what’s being talked about. A gathering of teachers is not a matter of controlling the evolution of Buddhism or Buddhist teaching in America. That’s neither desirable nor even possible, but such a gathering is part of the evolution of Buddhism in America. —Ken McLeod photos: (top) Max MaksiMik / Garrison institute, (center) a. jesse jiryu davis
