SFZC Board Meeting Abbreviated Minutes (11/19/14)

The Board of Directors of Zen Center met on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, at Greens Restaurant.

The Board’s major action item was to pass a new policy for abbatial review, designed to encourage self-evaluation among each member of the abbacy (the current abbot and abbesses and the abiding teacher at Tassajara) as to the quality of communication each abbot and abbess maintains with their peers. Each member would be asked to share a written review of this practice with the board chair, who will coordinate the process and meet with the abbatial leaders.  This practice is designed to foster team work and unity, and encourage connection within the abbacy.
