It is wonderful to see two of my favourite Zen Center people collaborating on a great theme, and I am just sorry that I will be a long way away and unable to attend. Zachary and Djinn are presenting a day of unplugged practice at City Center on Sunday 9th. Djinn had a retreat scheduled at Tassajara on the same theme, but it was one of the first to be affected by the fire-related closure of the guest season, so I am glad she will have some chance to bring forward her offering.
Both Djinn and Zachary were present at the recent jukai I attended at City Center, and asked if I would take a photo of them as part of the publicity material. We agreed this one might be a little too ironic to use.
In other unfortunate scheduling news, I was sad to see that this afternoon workshop, presented by Anushka Fernandopulle, who I admire and respect as a teacher and facilitator, coincides exactly with a Roaming Zen afternoon. If you feel more drawn to this, I would not mind.
