"Enlightenment is like the moon reflected on the water.

The moon does not get wet nor is the water broken.

Although its light is wide and great,

The moon is reflected in a puddle even an inch wide.

The whole moon and the entire sky

Are reflected on one dewdrop in the grass."

  - Eihei Dogen Zenji

The practice of seated meditation or awareness (jpn. Zazen) is fundamental to an ancient way of integrating with our world as it is - one breath at a time.

After an intimate, calm relationship with our space has been established we can explore the environs of 1870 Farm in detail.

Contact keithbowers@protonmail.com for questions you have or if inclement weather is predicted.

大心 (Daishin) is the Zen Buddhist concept that most closely translates to "Great Heart-Mind." This idea - that one is to have a boundless center of being - is core to our mission as crafters of the earth; to craft the earth is to craft the self.

Daishin Earthcrafters is dedicated to fostering this ideal. Our partnership with 1870 Farm is aimed at growing with intention and working wholeheartedly with the people of the Triangle and their younglings.
