Hardcore Zen

I went this morning and sat for my first real meditation session. Sure, I’ve sat down before to quiet my mind. But I’ve never attempted any “formal” practice of meditation, and my friend was going down this morning for Brad Warner’s group. Apparently he studied in Japan for some 11 years under Gudo Nishijima. Interestingly enough, he’s married to a woman named Yuka. The meditation was great. I look forward to making a habit of it. Especially once I can afford to buy myself a zafu for home use (they have mats and zafus available to use at the group, but they meet only once a week and it’s all the way down in Santa Monica). More will be revealed…
