We kept to the same timetable as we did during the last zazenkai; the biggest difference was the season... it was not warm! We had heaters in the main hall area which were a lot better than nothing, but the 'backstage' area used for interviews was absolutely freezing. Wished I'd learned that Tibetan heat meditation, Tummo... would have helped.
Was great to meet new people as well as having some returning faces. Great also to warm up in the Wooden Walls afterwards!
|OK, it wasn't quite this cold. And we had more clothing.|
