    August 16-17th, 2013 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    Hello All,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 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)

    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN




    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:

    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication

    00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
    01:25 – 01:30 FOUR VOWS & VERSE OF ATONEMENT


    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'.

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

    or

    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

    I think for this Sundays sitting group at the Bodhi tree Cafe, we will sit along with this weeks 90 minute zazenkai netcast. If I can sort out a computer in the zendo.

    If there are no objections from Jundo, Taigu, or the sangha of course.

    I can't join on camera because my phone is being fixed, but I will probably sit live for a while. I have some friends over, though, so I'm not sure. Either way, I will be sitting with you all.

    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.
