We put together a 15 minute video this week of Tenshin Roshi walking around the grounds of Yokoji showing the damage that has been done, what we've done so far to prepare for the winter and we still plan to do.

    thanks for doing the vid – very enlightening! my heart breaks for good and faithful cabin 1.

    Words are easy, like the wind;
    Faithful friends are hard to find.

    Thank you for the video; it puts some perspective on the condition of ZMC for me.

    Thank you. Thank you for all the info that’s given on such a regular basis. Like Eishu said: it gives perspective. On all that you have to do to save the center and the grounds, but also on the black and grey damage of the surrounding nature.

    I’m curious what it will lead to as it feels so symbolic for the current time of age: things are moving and changing in such a fast and unpredictable way and I’m convinced they will lead to ‘new’. Old needs to disappear in order for a new world to appear. Exciting as well for Yokoji and the practice I think. What will the ‘new’ Yokoji look like?

    Anyways, thanks for keeping us updated! And I wish you good luck and lots of wisdom with all that’s on your plate. Lots of love for all of you! Henrike

    I would very much like to volunteer my skills as a tradesman to help with
    the re-creation of a beautiful and peaceful place.
