• July 6-7th, 2013 Our 'Not-Two Part' HAN-ZENKAI!!

    Hi Everyone,

    Our HANS (Mongen) is VISITING TREELEAF TSUKUBA, here in Japan, this weekend. Because of his visit (plus the fact that I have a local person who wishes to attend the first time, and that my wife is away and I will have my daughter Sada in my care most of the weekend) our Monthly Zazenkai this time will be divided into TWO SESSIONS (two but only one). The first part will be the same as our usual Saturday Zazenkai, and the second part will commence several hours later (times below), hopefully to allow some of our folks in Europe to sit with us. Mongen and Sada will be with us for only the second part.

    SO ... WELCOME MONGEN (& SADA)!

    Non-Part I:

    Please join our 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (early Saturday morning) ... ... to be visible at the following link during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

      Yay!
      I hope I can make it for non-part II live. I have to pick up my daugther in the morning, but hopefully I can manage this either before or after the zazenkai (wish me luck).
      Finally a good time of day for a live zazenkai (for me).

      Gassho,

      Not sure if I was present in body if not in spirit. The mysteries of Google+ and my ineptitude still present.
      Pretty sure my mic was muted, otherwise my sneeze would have awakened the dead.

      Thanks guys for putting up with my cyber presence.

      Thank you Sada, Hans and Jundo. Thank you for the great talk Hans. Gassho to all sitting.

      May I echo Heisoku, thanks to Hans for being so spontaneous, Jundo for organizing and setting the whole thing up for us again and, Sada for being herself. It was great to be able to sit live in the UK without having to get up in the middle of the night. I would be nice for this to become a regular event
