About 2 weeks ago we took the day off from training and we’re lead be our fearless leaders (Chris Sensei and Andy Sensei) to this tiny waterfall at Nanzenji Temple
In this particular case size doesn’t count because this tiny little waterfall thrusts huge massive forces of water upon our necks and shoulder. As you can see in the pictures below, they left a mark.
We were a good size group. There was probably around 10 of us all together. We each initially took turns going under the waterfall (that felt like rocks pounding against our back) and chanting loudly. I cannot remember what we chanted for the life of me. But to my complete surprise there was something rather soothing about chanting over and over again. It befuddles the mind.
After the adventure with Misosogi (I’m not sure if this word is a verb or a noun so I’m using it interchangeably), we went to grab breakfast and then had a day at Omi Maiko Beach.
Using a phrase I never used in my life until I started hanging around Nick and Andy sensei… The whole experience was “epic.”
