Above are many of the participants in our Spring Distant Temple Bell Sesshin, which the tanto (head seat and retreat manager) Rev. Paul Galvin named the "Ready to Fly" Sesshin. As usual the transformations of heart were numerous, and I am so grateful for everyone who participated, especially the officers who made it all happen: Jenny Smith, Senior Assistant Teacher Michael Herzog, Rev. Corwyn Miyagishima and Erin Barbour. Plus deep bows to my fellow teachers David Rynick, Roshi and Dharma Holder Alan Richardson.
Our next sesshin at Boundless Way Temple will be June 10 -- 12, and will be our first ever hybrid sesshin, with a few people in residence at the Temple, and everyone else on Zoom. We look forward to this new chapter in our sesshin journey as we slowly come through the experience of closing due to COVID in March of 2020, and our discovery of the powers of Zoom. We're all ready to fly!
