Around 30 people attended Reiki history presented by Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei & Reiki Share on Friday evening, include retreat attendees RMTs, sangha members of Dai Bosatsu Zendo & Visitors.
All attendees have their name plates in Zendo, for Zazen. Some were very excited to see they have Zafu & Zabuton set of their own.
I am still touched by how all Reiki Masters cope with demanding schedule of class, 5 am wake up bell, early meditation(Zazen) and formal breakfast. We were honored by presence of the Abbot, Shinge Roshi, performing Morning Service, participating formal/ informal meals with our group.
Saturday night’s informal meal was over the top standard, to celebrate Sensei’s Birthday and another Sangha member Junko san’s. Surprise performance of Drums & dance by Baba Toni & Carmen, cheered up every one present. Thank you Manu & Lan San for inviting them.
I am grateful of every single person who asssited/ helped to make this event grandiose. Include are My teacher Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei, Peter (My spouse & life companion), Jodo San (head monk at DBZ), Yusen & Anne Dowling(Tenzo), all the monks, residents/ sanghas, Mark Dodd (Zen Transit/ Ohashiatsu Alumni) and all RMTs and spouse attended this Retreat.
