You know that feeling when all of your anxiety just releases? When you wipe the sweat off your stomach and sit down and breath out for what feels like the first time all day? (I hope you do because gosh what a great feeling).
That’s how I felt after our first-ever zen seminars in October. At first I was pretty freaked out. What if we go to all this trouble and nobody shows up? What if people show up but are not receptive to the training? What if someone gets hurt? These are little worries I always have before a big event but usually somewhere deeper I know that it’s going to be fine. How could something like this be anything but amazing!
They were so good. SO good. We got such great feedback and connections made. I hope those of you that were able to attend have been able to keep that instruction with you through this holiday season, it’s been great to hear some of you still come up!
If you wobbled, that’s ok too. Michael and the Chozen-ji will be offering this class more often for us in 2018! We will open the doors to anyone touched by cancer or any serious life struggles so if you didn’t make the last one or just want a refresher this is here for you.
January went well and now we are confirmed for March 10th and 11th 3P-5P. Wear loose fitting pants. No tank tops or shorts allowed in the dojo. Slippers are best for footwear. Bring a hydroflask! No charge for this! Just make sure to e-mail cw to let us know you are coming.
