At the Sep 30 Zazenkai, Ryotan Sensei invoked Ryokan’s poem
Maple leaf Falling down Showing front Showing back
as an invitation to look deeply into this mind.
Three full bows in gratitude to Ryotan Sensei for making the trip to share the teaching with the Oxbow Zen Sangha!
And, as always, many thanks to the many hands that create and maintain the container in which we can settle deeply into whole-hearted practice. Very special thanks to Shokai and Mark for their hospitality!
Happy Fall Equinox, everyone! Please register now via email for our day-long Harvest Zazenkai on Sept 30, with talk by and interview with Ryotan Sensei from the Village Zendo. Sign up for our electronic email list to stay up-to-date on the shared planning and decision process.
We will come together for a Sangha Meeting on September 3 2017, 10 AM – noon. Please join the conversation on our community email list to share any ideas we would like to explore together. Hope to see you there!
The Village Zendo Shuso Sesshin takes place from Aug 15-22 2017. Once again videos of the Dharma Talks will be publicly available through Facebook at facebook.com/VillageZendo/ Watch them live or watch them later!
