This is a talk I gave back in 2012 at DharmaPunx NYC. If you've ever been to a class at the Bowery location you know about the door. To say that the front door at 302 Bowery sticks is an understatement. Not only does it stick but the buzzer that indicates that you should start trying to open the door is very faint and doesn't stand a chance agains the clamor and chaos of cars, trucks, taxi cabs and pedestrians. For years I dreaded the door. I think I probably became the cushion set up person JUST to get a set of keys to that door.
