    I am wondering what magic we will see this week, after last week's 'perfect timing' moment when Japan and the 'rest of the world' were so apart, yet so together...!

    Hi guys,

    Impermanence hit. The father of a close friend didn't wake up this morning. I'm okay because I didn't have a relationship with him, but I'll go and be with my friend and see she is okay.

    So I'll sit with you from a funeral.

    Gassho,

    Kyonin

    ... Yes, sometimes being with a suffering friend is Zazen too.

    Aw Kyonin, I will also sit for your friend and all suffering losses today.
    Not sure if I will make it to the Zazenkai, as we are out of town, but I will try.

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    Wow, @Andoitz, great that you made it in the middle of the night
    I could not sleep for half the night and almost decided to rise and be there live, but it seems I finally fell asleep before I could get out of bed.

    Yet, as always it is equally fine to sit with you all afterward!

    Due to some work-related issues I had to stay in the office until very late (2ish). On my way back home I thought it was a great opportunity to sit Zazenkai live (at the same time my wife thought I was definitely out of my mind, it was worth it though ).

    Wow, @Andoitz, great that you made it in the middle of the night
    During the last year I kept sitting two ways every other week which meant to me
    a very early rise for a weekly Zazenkai or never going to bed if it was a monthly one.
    Once you get tuned you begin loving it.

    For Ango of this year I'll try to stick to this schedule again.
    Why? For no reason at all
