On Saturday June 17th, we came out from our Solstice Sesshin schedule to conduct a ceremony consecrating the ground where Korinji's future residence will stand. This summer the excavators will come in, and our slab should be poured by the end of August. Construction will begin in earnest in the fall, with completion scheduled for February 2018...just in time for our firstango to begin in March.
We were joined at our ceremony by community supporters, members of the Korinji board, and several Soto Zen colleagues from Madison. For an hour or so after the ceremony we enjoyed refreshments and conversation together, before our sesshin trainees dove back in to their training. Thank you to everyone who came!
