2023 Opening Ceremony

The ZGWA's opening ceremony was preceded by words from Ross Bolleter Roshi and Mari Rhydwen Roshi read by Nick Arnold and Kathy Shiels respectively. Paul Wilson then invited the bell to sound 108 times to bring in the new year, which represents the cleansing of the 108 worldly passions. A recording of this ceremony is now available: Teacher's and Kathy's opening words, bell sounding 108 times.
