The Wild Goose Sangha is made up of people who are committed to the practice of Zen meditation. The name is taken from the Celtic spiritual tradition that sees a wild goose as a metaphor for the divine creator. This is because of its total determination and faithfulness. Those of the sangha are similarly dedicated to their practice as best they can.
The Sangha is under the direction of Roshi Patrick Kundo Eastman, a Roman Catholic priest and a Zen teacher in the Zen White Plum Asanga that was begun in the United States by Taizan Maezumi Roshi.
