Thank you all for sitting! I see from a quick glance at the recording that the camera moved, so apologies for having to stare at my neck! I think just about everything that could go "wrong" did.

But it was perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. [monk]

Have a good weekend everyone!

Gassho,

Thank you Dosho, Yugen and all who sat. I'm just able to sit a shortened version but that direct, human exchange of words at the end is very nice.

And now just sit where you are.

Monks of old sometimes found themselves away from the monastery, on the road. Did they regret being out of touch? No "hotspots" except on the Zafu or rock where you find yourself sitting.
