Something that has unexpectedly emerged out of Bamboo Grove is a more comprehensive apprenticeship that we are referring to as the Immortal Dragon Investiture. This more extensive training consists of 1,000 days of “Lingering in the Bamboo Grove” – referring to sitting in Zuowang in the atmosphere of Laozi’s teaching. It also includes various elements of academics, philosophy, hygiene, meditation, & ritual. I am currently working with a close cohort of apprentices and may open up another cohort next year if there is interest. For more information, see our group’s website, www.wuweidao.org.
