After meditating for some time you might find you desire more spiritual direction or guidance - perhaps by becoming a student.
The first step is to make a formal request to Roshi Ray or Sensei Michele. You'll then be asked to write a short spiritual biography:
What brought you to this practice?
How long have you been practicing?
Do you practice on a regular basis?
Have you worked with a teacher before?
If so - who have you worked with?
Are you confronting any spiritual issues?
Are there any dilemmas you are facing?
Bring your completed biography to daisan.
If accepted as a student, you'll be asked to:
Deepen your commitment to Zen practice (attend sesshin and zazenkai)
Choose one of the below
Body practice - Yoga, Martial Arts...
Creative practice - Painting, Poetry...
Perform Service regularly at the Zendo
Work with your teacher as spiritual guide
