    As you can see, our Zazenkai consists of chanting the 'Heart Sutra' in English (the words are at the link below), some full floor prostrations in sets of three (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), followed by our Dedication, Zazen twice for about 30 minutes each, with 10 minutes of Kinhin in between, and we end the sitting with 'The Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'.

      LIVE NON-LIVE SIT - SATURDAY 8AM MOUNTAIN TIME (UTC -6)

      Sorry, I don't have time to figure out invites on Google+, so here is your invite: Join me Saturday morning (afternoon in Europe) for Zazenkai.

      The hangout will be on Google+, while at the same time viewing the recorded video. Hope that makes sense.

      I'll try to sit tomorrow morning and the day after tomorrow. If the video doesn't work I'll still sit the zazenkai.
