Re: Perhaps the tide is changing.
Chris, thanks for this lovely portrait of a dojo with lots of life in it. It's giving me lots of food for thought. My dojo is hoping to grow in 2013, and I've been thinking a lot about what that means. Bringing in new people, bringing back people who have drifted away, elevating the practice of those who are already here? Hopefully all of the above, but the specifics...?
The other night as I was driving home I had the thought: sustained growth will only come by being ourselves. Not sure yet what that means, though.
