Matsuoka Roshi Disciple Gathering

Deshi Kaigou

A very special gathering was held on August 10th – 12th. First and second generation Matsuoka Roshi disciples met at the AZSZC in Tucson Arizona.

We had priests from California, Arizona, Georgia, and New Mexico. Next year’s meeting will be at the Atlanta Soto Zen Center.

It was a wonderful event with lots of sharing. Many of us had never met. Some of us had not seen each other in 20+ years.
