    INTRODUCING: Our New "Guide to Zazen" and "Tour of Treeleaf" (& newsletter too)

    Dear All,

    We have published some new resources for newcomers to Treeleaf, and I would like to point them out to everyone here ...

    First is a written, introductory Guide to Basic Sitting (PDF) (LINK), meant primarily for people very new to sitting and Shikantaza Zazen.

    Next, is a video "Guided Tour of Treeleaf" hosted by Taigu (LINK), meant to take newcomers to our Sangha on a guided tour of this Forum and some of our other resources. It is found on our Treeleaf.org webpage, and accompanies our earlier "Welcome to Treeleaf" video (LINK) that highlights the flavor of this community. All people registering with Treeleaf will be pointed to these resources as their first stop. Please have a look.

    All that is in addition to our present special series of video TALKS FOR BEGINNERS (we are all beginners!) (LINK), meant for new folks and old alike, and introducing the "how-non-to" of Shikantaza in detail.

    Also in the coming days, you should receive in your email a short Treeleaf Newsletter called "The Leaf", containing some articles by or about some of our members. Please look for that, and consider publishing something in one of the future issues to be sent a few times a year. (You can also opt out if your mailbox is too cluttered! ) I wrote there ...

    Welcome to our first issue of the ‘Leaf’, yet another small way for us to reach out and embrace in this Sangha unlimited by place and distance. We hope the feeling and content is as simple and cozy as an old school newspaper, with news of events, poems, pointers, recipes and laughter, book tips, stories and profiles of some of our diverse, lovely Treeleaf members.

    I wish to thank the several people who worked so hard and tirelessly on creating each of these resources, in front and behind the scenes, often losing sleep and despite other jobs and responsibilities. I would name them, but each would prefer not to take one drop of credit. Let us offer Gassho and thanks to all of them.

    Gassho, J

    Hi Kyonin....... I had referenced on this thread a few days back, and knowing that you are subscribing to it, that the news letter had not hit my box. Could you please engineer this for me, knowing this `all is not a select group, of which I would like to receive now when time allows, and be on that mailing in the future.

    A question for you ... Is the newsletter an automatic option, or do you need us to provide you email or such?

    All members were automagically subscribed. We missed a couple of addresses, but they have been added.

    Also, all the new members will be added automatically when joining Treeleaf.

    We are still adjusting things, so we expect some bugs... that will get squashed when detected

    And of course people are be able to unsubscribe whenever they like.

    Please follow the Dalai Lama's wise example on our bugs, though perhaps not the breathing kind. Request that they leave before finally squashing.

    I like to see monks laugh. Sometimes I forget that my practice is not all seriousness.
