Tsubaki Shrine Trip This Weekend

So this weekend I am going back up to the Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America for a Shinto Seminar (see October 27th-28th entry at http://www.tsubakishrine.com/schedule.html).

I have not been there in October. Weather-wise, it looks like the highs will be in the mid-50's and the lows will be in the mid-40's. Where this comes into play is Misogi, a purification ritual that we usually do in the Pilchuk river that runs next to the Shrine. (See http://www.tsubakishrine.com/misogi_shuho.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misogi.) Usually, I am good with the cold water. Its walking barefoot on the rocks that is the real gyo.

It will be good to get back there. It has been too long.
