We are in the middle of Jukai Sesshin, and you are welcome to join in for any part of it except meals. See the schedule to find out when you can slip in and partake of this container of practice. (The Sunday early morning schedule may change.)
During February we have seen some beautiful sunsets from the property. This photo was taken from the porch of Uji.
We have rearranged the zendo so that more chairs are forward from where they have been. We hope this encourages people to move up, particularly for Dharma Talks. It should allow those who need to sit in chairs to be more integrated into the rest of the sangha in the zendo.
Last week, we got sidewalks installed in front of the duplexes, which has been a great help in ongoing work. This week, in addition to work on the duplexes, work practice during the sesshin has included work in the gardens, sewing, kitchen, housekeeping, and landscaping work on the property. It all makes a difference.
Wednesday Work Parties
We have regular Wednesday work parties from around 9:30am to 3:30pm. There is plenty of work for people to do, inside and outside, light and heavy. Come for as much or little of the time as you wish. We have tools and gloves, but if you have your own, feel free to bring them. If you are around at 12:30pm, we feed you lunch.
