Fall and Winter Update

Our December 1&2 retreat went well and was a nice end note to the more intense practice offerings this year. The retreat ended on Sunday with Jodo-e, the traiditonal ceremony to celebrate Buddha Shakyamuni’s enlightenment. The ceremony was followed by the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Cambridge Buddhist Association. The Great Bell in the stairwell was struck 50 times to remember each year that the CBA has been in existence.

Rob, Shuko, and Dokuro drove to Ithaca, NY to participate in a seven day Dai-sesshin with Joshu Roshi. Ithaca Zen Center is a beautiful place and it was a privilege to participate with a good number of other long-time students and followers of Joshu Roshi. The Roshi has moved on to Bodhi Manda Zen Center, where the Fall Kessei will start shortly.
