Thread: Sunday Sit with Washin and Shugen

  1. #51
    i hope eventually to return to Sunday Sit (or try any scheduled sit), but it may be a while. lately i've had some family matters requiring my attention / availability. it seems to come in waves, but the waves are coming in more frequently with the elder ones.

    Again I have missed the Sunday sit but still know that Iím working up to the full sitting. Recently I Joined into a 30 min sit with I believe it was Byoken and one or two other people. It went reasonably well and sat the whole 30 min. And as I sit by myself I am adding small amounts of time to my practice. Eventually I will be able to sit with you. For Rohatsu I sat the entire 1.5 hrs of initial practice.

    Thank you for leaving the door open, and allowing a novice lay-member to join in! I will be attending church next week, and the week after will see me on time with every intent to practice the whole time from 8 a.m. on, and thanks again for this nourishing experience.

    Though I will not give up my time with my Friend who takes me to movies, we DO keep about 20 ft distance at movies, and who takes me to AA meetings, we are skipping an AA meeting this week as our area is in State of Emergency, I'm sure AA will continue for those in need, because we cannot stop ministering to our fellowship of Alcoholics, and I am able to maintain a 6 foot to three foot distance unlike church. I will be skipping church and watching on internet. I intend to be on time this Sunday morning as I know I can make it through the entire Shikantaza, and chants.
