    FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS ARE POSTED AT THIS LINK. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG VIA THE ABOVE SCREEN. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

    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'.

    So, please join us as soon as you can, and we will keep a Zafu open for you.

    Remember, when we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!


    Gassho, Jundo

      Sitting with my group tonight. Sunday was cancelled, so tonight will be a trial run with about 5 sitters.

      An interesting experiment in sitting in one place and time with a group with folks around the world, no here and there. Let us know how the experiment goes.

      We had a small group of three last night. I think they were very curious to see me walking into the "zendo" with laptop in hand. Once I explained my plans, they were very open to it. It was a very pleasant experience (despite the echo) that I hope to continue regularly. I do have to sort out some equipment issues as I borrowed my daughters lap top last night. She's starting college the week of labor day and taking that with her. As soon as I get it sorted, we will incorporate our sits with tree leafs sits. Unfortunately due the schedule and availability of the room, I wont be able to do it live. but, that's OK. Now is always now, no matter what anyone tries to tell you.
