Thirteen People participated in the opening day of our Fall Practice Period!

Despite not being able to listen to Dairyu’s Dharma talk mid-day, it seemed that we had a very useful discussion during that break period in sitting. ¬†Later in the day we were able to Skype with Dragons Leap to participate in the Shosan Ceremony before closing our Sesshin with chanting the refuges.

Many thanks to Lane and Ilaria for sharing Tenzo duty on Sunday and nourishing our practice with healthy, delicious food!  Thanks also to Carlos for baking cookies for and managing the afternoon tea.

Here is a photo which Curt Ponce-Barger took of the sangha members still in the zendo at 8pm.
Looking forward to our next half day sit on October 20th, 2013 from 9am-2pm.
