Hi Dharmavidya,

Just lost my job, (found out today!)so slightly tentative this commitment to come.  A bit of uncertainty around; here and now my intention is to attend.

Thank you to everyone I encountered this weekend and those who took and take care of the practicalities. I'm aware the retreat has not yet ended so... maybe through imagination and mindfulness I can be transported to the shrine room, near you and the golden Buddha. Much love

Ann, it would be lovely if you come for a bit, we are also going to broadcast the chanting, so everybody can join us from their homes.

Accepting my 'little' way of being and my life-situation, I want to express that i will not join the Bodhiretreat. This feel sad...just as it is, just as we're. Much love to you all and a warm hug. Namo Amida Bu
