    Yes, it will be a 3-day Sesshin with a 'local' Sangha (some 500km away of my town) from 24th to 27th
    October. I will also have a chance of many 'train zazen' during the 14 hrs of a round trip

    My time in Hartford, South Dakota is 10:30 p.m. when this sitting takes place. I cannot say I will be at every meeting, but I would like to try this before my bedtime. I will try sometime. I have been away from Treeleaf groups in Shikantaza far too long.

    Thank you so much-- I made it all the way through, was it one hour? I am happy about this. Despite all, we can sit in harmony with each other do as the Buddha would have us do-- being there for each other, And for me, dare I say my own commitment? In Christ-like fashion. Yes, as was said, for each other, to be well and take care of each other.

    Thank you all friends for sitting together this morning here.

    Let me repeat what I said by the end of zazen:
    Today we're sitting with people of Byelorus who stand agains the present
    situation in the country and are being heavily supressed by the regime.
    Metta for all
