Hey, I'm new here in this community as am I relatively new to the Zen community. So, to start, my name is Emily, I am 17 years old living near Albuquerque, NM, and I have been an official student of Joshu Sasaki Roshi for about one year. I am about to embark upon my first full daisesshin, which is also the Rohatsu daisesshin at my home temple. I have done bits and pieces of sesshin before, mostly general sesshin, but never more than 4 days at a time, so I am excited to see how the week will go (when it comes, it starts on Thanksgiving day). Naturally, I have some questions, but I usually just observe, or at least that's how I work in 'real life'. I hope that there are good conversations to come!
