    The other video I mention on Zendo decorum is this one, from our "Always Beginners" video Series:

    I also recommend a little Talk on why small rituals and procedures are so cherished in the Zendo:

    Alas, I have been suddenly called away for this Zazenkai. Fortunately, Washin, our Ino, will be leading the festivities from Ukraine, so ... all set for launch!

    I will join the sitting another day.

    Thank you, Jundo. I believe Sekishi is to take up the Doshi role and I'll be happy to
    accompany him with my instruments

    I’ve been working outside today, cutting frozen briars, so today’s talk will be: the Brush Axe That Cuts Through Delusion.

    To set the stage, here is the frozen briar patch:


    And here is the brush axe (and my helper Mattie):

    Thank you Sekishi, Washin and everyone.

    Lovely talk, Sekishi. Similar to your briars, as I was walking home from work this week the beauty of tree branches coated in a layer of ice that were catching the light from a street lamp stopped me in my tracks (Ohio got a lot of the same weather you did down there).

    Gassho,

    Thank you Sekishi, Washin, and all for another wonderful Zazenkai and Dharma talk. I've got plenty of briars in my life that I need to work with, so the talk resonated quite well with me.

    Thank you Sekishi, Washin and everyone for another wonderful Zazenkai. I sat with all of you this morning.

    Nice talk Sekishi. Thorns and briars are fertile ground for Dharma.

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    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).
