Deep Gassho.I have been ill the last year+ and an on-line retreat was the only way I could participate. I began watching live at 1:00 p.m. Friday and divided the sesshin into three days due to my circumstances.With tears in my eyes, and the entire cosmos in my heart … thank you to Treeleaf and the opportunity to be part of a Sangha. Special thanks to David who brought a human touch to this sacred event. And (as more tears fall from my cheeks) deep thanks to Jundo you will never know how many lives you have touched.May this Rohatsu bring everyone closer to that which they seek and of course the deeper understanding that they are already that.Salubrious.
