    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:

    The Sitting Schedule is as follows;

    00:00 - 00:50 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA / SANDOKAI IN ENGLISH) & ZAZEN
    00:50 - 01:00 KINHIN
    01:00 - 01:30 ZAZEN
    01:30 - 01:50 KINHIN

    01:50 - 02:30 DHARMA TALK & ZAZEN
    02:30 - 02:40 KINHIN

    02:40 - 03:15 ZAZEN
    03:15 - 03:30 KINHIN
    03:30 - 04:00 METTA CHANT & ZAZEN, VERSE OF ATONEMENT, FOUR VOWS, & CLOSING


    Our Zazenkai consists of our chanting the 'Heart Sutra' and the 'Identity of Relative and Absolute (Sandokai)' in English (please download our Chant Book at the link below), some full floor prostrations (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), a little talk by me ... and we close with the 'Metta Chant', followed at the end with the 'Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'. Oh, and lots and lots of Zazen and walkin' Kinhin in between!

    Please download and print out the Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

    Chant Book (PDF)

    or

    Chant Book (SHORT VERSION HTML)

    I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU POSITION YOUR ZAFU ON THE FLOOR IN A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE NOT STARING DIRECTLY AT THE COMPUTER SCREEN, BUT CAN GLANCE OVER AND SEE THE SCREEN WHEN NECESSARY. YOUR ZAFU SHOULD ALSO BE IN A POSITION WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE COMPUTER SCREEN WHILE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE ZAFU FOR THE CEREMONIES, AND HAVE ROOM FOR BOWING AND KINHIN.

    ALSO, REMEMBER TO SET YOUR COMPUTER (& SCREEN SAVER) SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHUT OFF DURING THE 4 HOURS.


    I hope you will join us ... an open Zafu is waiting. When we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

      Here is the podcast I mentioned after our Metta Chant on the father who forgave his daughter's killer. Very painful to hear at some points in the story ... (it starts from the 44:00 mark here) ...

      Gassho, J
      Thank you Jundo. I like the thought of being Thay's bell instead of just a nuisance ("not two" I guess).

      I just finished that Radiolab this past week. A difficult and instructive episode.

      Deep gassho,

      Forgiving him is forgiving you is forgiving me is forgiving.

      Jundo, the talk was really meaningful. Thank you. Hope that cold goes away soon.

      I'll listen to the podcast tomorrow while taking a walk.

      Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

      Wisdom is empty without compassion.
      Great compassion begins at home with ourselves.
      Sitting wholeheartedly, not wasting too much time on the cushion, is self-compassion dana.
      Then we can be just there for others in compassionate presence, seeing things just as they are.
      In gratitude to all here for your practice.

      Thanks Clark ... Bodhi seems to be getting very smart and he is starting to time these Zazenkais ... knows when to get up for scratches.

      What a great Oktoberfest-Zazenkai!
      This was not imperfectly perfect, but perfectly perfect up to and including the final "Auf Wiedersehen".
      Very good Dharma talk as always, truly inspiring!

      Thanks for your practice!

      I haven't been able to sit yet. Dads taxi service has been in full swing this weekend. I should be sitting tonight, though I may have to break it into two portions.

    Return to Sender....maybe!

    I'm not a teacher, I've only been sitting for a few years. When my mind 'wanders', I typically mean that it is no longer 'here', aware of this now.
