      Thanks Everyone. The weather here while I sat was perfectly Ango, in that there was a light rain just outside my window. Hopefully I will be able to do a full live sit with all someday.

      Thank you all for your practice.

      Feeling a soft breeze
      body and mind drop away
      with the falling leaves.



      Same time next week?

    Hi Tony,

    Sesshin can be very hard and in my experience, whatever small it is, is that you have to build up your strength in order to attend

    It All Counts

    I think that this is a wonderful example of "everything counts". You do what you can with what is presented.

    Thank you for sharing.
