Some time after taking the Precepts, often a year or two, the desire may arise to take a Teacher. Taking a Teacher allows for a deepening of practice, as the Teacher/Student relationship allows for more intimacy, support, and direction. Several Teachers are active at Dharma Rain. It’s a good practice to attend sanzen with several or all of them over some time in order to discern a Teacher you trust to guide you on your spiritual journey.
