A quick update—we will be meeting for practice tomorrow, 11/11, please join us if you can. My apologies for missing several Saturdays these past weeks. While away I was incredibly fortunate to attend a once-in-a-lifetime event at Korinji with the Tendai “marathon monk” Tanno Kakudo Mitsunaga Dai-Ajari. And last Saturday I was able to participate in the annual training for volunteer chaplains at the county jail. We will be meeting according to our usual schedule for the rest of November, but I will be away again the first two Saturdays in December (12/2 & 12/9) attending Rohatsu Dai-Sesshin at Korinji. Thank you!
