“Think of how someone wrings out a wet towel with all his or her might and then releases. Our lives should be like this. For without a doubt it is through maintaining the right balance of intensity in our practice and of relaxation – sitting back and enjoying life – that genuine understanding develops.”
Japan Trip for August of 2019
A 5-day Zen retreat (sesshin) in Nara prefecture, the spiritual heartland of Japan, followed by site-seeing and cultural activities around Nara and Kyoto, climbing Mount Fuji (in Shizuoka), and all-night Bon dancing in Gujo Hachiman (Gifu prefecture). Should be another fantastic year!
