So I've finally managed to get my phone account sorted, and for the first time in over a year, I now have voicemail!
I wonder how many people have called but not been able to get through to me? If that describes you and you haven't been able to get in touch, please try again - or email me.
A brief update: over the past months, we've been working through Blofeld's The Zen Teaching of Huang Po. Some may be relieved to know that we've now finished that! It could be pretty tough going at times, I agree. For the next months, we'll be taking a more eclectic approach, with talks taken from more accessible writers and occasionally audio talks from some of our own teachers (Keizan Sensei and Tenshin Roshi). I think this will be a nice change of pace, and I think more accessible for those who have only recently got into Zen practice and teaching.
Ultimately though: practice!
