    Encouraging Words!

    I came across this tonight while reading Shobogenzo. I felt like sharing it with you all.

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks for sitting with all of us at the Retreat! I saw you sitting over in the corner of the room.

    I love Bendowa, and it is very approachable and beautiful. I am thinking of using that as the base for our next Sit-a-Long talks on the blog.

    By the way, BIG NEWS about the blog coming later this week. (I will keep it mysterious for now).

        Hi Jundo,

        Sitting with you all was a good experience, I hope to be doing more of that in the future!!

        Yes, I'm really enjoying Bendowa --- it does seem approachable, not intimidating in any way. I look forward to you teaching on it.


        Big news about the Blog? Hmmm . . . I'm intrigued, looking forward to your announcement as well.
