[chuck] in Dharma, EHZC, doan

Catherine acts as doan during most of the morning sittings at EHZC, and I frequently sit on the cushion right across from her. Have spent hours with a soft gaze toward the floor right in front of the hands shown above. [NOTE: The doan is the person who rings the bell to mark the beginning and end of zazen. The beautiful bronze kesu (temple bell) that is rung is shown on the lower left].
