9-30-16 - Here's how a post from a few hours ago on the Tassajara Facebook page starts: SOBERANES FIRE UPDATE as of 9/29. Dear Sangha -- We have good news. The likelihood of the fire coming to Tassajara has now been designated as very low, and the fire is 92% contained. For that reason, Tassajara practice period students will be returning to the monastery this weekend to help with a short work period. The Winter Practice Period will start on October 15th led by Central Abbess Linda Ruth Cutts.
