During the two week period in January that the zen center was closed, Jiun roshi started making a new cupboard for the dining hall. Designing, building, drilling holes, glueing:

In the same period the students of the Theo Thijssen school visited for a few days to receive inspiration, and the meditation leaders of IZIN held their annual meeting.

Next came the winter training from February 8 to March 4, for the first time with two consecutive go-sesshins. The first was guided by Jiun roshi, the second by Jishin osho. If you missed this chance to sit for a longer period: in november we'll do it again.

Immediately afterwards Jiun roshi went to Florida for several meetings in the Dharma House and for a sesshin in Micanopy.

At the end of the sesshin Jennifer Roden took the precepts.
