Sanghas like ours in America are rapidly enacting an equivalent of the protestant reformation. A reorientation of practice away from a monastic ideal, mediated by priesthood, towards one focused on householder practice in a lay context. Joko wrote, "each moment, life as it is, the only teacher." What is it life is teaching us? Is this teaching more easily found and practiced in monasteries or is it available in the midst of a lay life?
