    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi all,

    Here is the tea party report for Sunday, July 17th:

    We've developed a pretty steady turnout over the last few weeks which has led to some very good discussions. After our traditional meal chant, robe verses, and short sit we turned to matters of practice, many surrounding the upcoming ango and jukai here at Treeleaf. One sangha member who was recently in an accident discussed his fear and uncertainty about sewing a rakusu, mostly due to only having the full use of one hand, but also due to some other factors. This person also mentioned sitting zazen both on and off pain medication which led into a discussion of a recent Brad Warner post about zazen and recreational drug use that has generated much talk in the blogosphere. Another member talked about being off any kind of medication for the first time in 18 years and how it felt very much the same since stopping. Recent posts at Zen Forum International were also a topic of interest involving who is "suitable" for ordination as well the new book club selection, Zen Seeds. The tea party then concluded with some folks conversing on techniques for finishing a kesa (the part made of cloth anyway) and starting a new one.

    Hope to see some folks at this week's tea party...no camera required!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi all,

    Here is the tea party report for Sunday, August 7th:

    The vast majority of the discussion revolved around the upcoming Ango and the reluctance of some folks to commit to the 90 the days. The question was repeatedly pondered if Ango is truly about failing or succeeding, but the one agreement was that "pass/fail" doesn't ecapsulate the essence of what we are commiting to for the 3 months. The practice partner exercsies were also discussed and we were even able to find one person a partner during the call! Other topics discussed were merchandising, squeaky chairs, sewing, gardening, racoons, and swearing for pain relief!

    Hope to see some of you then!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi all,

    Here is the (belated) tea party report for Sunday, August 21st:

    We had a good number of folks on the call this past week, including one who recently returned after a hiatus to move the family to a new city and told of us of adventures exploring the new surroundings. After our traditional meal chant, robe verses, and short sit (which I missed!), the discussion turned to matters of practice. Specifically, we discussed where to place your gaze while in sitting zazen and foot placement and breaths during kinhin. One of our priests in training also discussed his encounter with a buddhist nun on a train and her order's efforts to build a new practice center in Europe. Other topics discussed were the differences in practice between Japan and the West, visiting local zen centers, Jundo's zendo in Tsukuba, sitting with other sangha members using Google+, vacationing in France, as well as the use of nuclear power at Fukushima and other parts of the world.

    Hope to see (or rather "hear") some of you this afternoon!

    Hi all,

    Here is the (belated...again!) tea party report for Sunday, August 28th:

    The call this past week covered a lot of different topics with no real rhyme or reason to them. Perfect! So, after our traditional meal chat, robe verses, and short sit we discussed the following: The benefits of practice, Skype, Ango, hurricanes, Buddhist Geeks, charter schools, zen messages in non-buddhist books, trees in your lungs, british journalism, traveling to Denmark, buddha nature in our pets, being madly in love, buddhist temples in Ohio, and tips for using the forum.

    Hope to see (or rather "hear") some of you this afternoon!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Using an idea suggested in another thread, below is this week's suggested menu for the Tea Party, if eveyone would like to share the same food during the Tea Party.

    Tea
    Cheese
    Crackers

    Looking ahead, for the week after, I propose:

    Tea
    Choice of cold cereral snack (cheerios, wheat chex, etc.)

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi all,

    Here is the tea party report for Sunday, September 4th:

    As we are now in the midst of our sangha's Ango, a new feature was added to talk about our particular experiences of Ango and the practice partner exercises which just commenced. After our traditional meal chant, robe verses, and short sit of zazen a number of topics were discussed. Along the lines of practice, one participant mentioned some issues with his rakusu and how it was temporarily acquired by a child who left a stain on it and another instance where an attempt to keep it clean meant it getting left behind. Another person mentioned that the greatest benefit to his practice has been the realization that, no matter how difficult a particular experience may be, it is possible recognize in the moment that such a feeling will undoubtedly pass. One person's work as a resource teacher was also discussed and the effort needed to work with children who have autism spectrum disorders or ADHD (but also that working with the other teachers and parents can be equally difficult). Other topics discussed included parenting our kids, learning to say no, speaking up more often, how many of the posts on the forum each of us read, speaking and listening in French, and meeting up with a moose.

    Hope to hear some folks on the tea party tomorrow!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi all,

    Here is the tea party report for Sunday, September 11th:

    We had a very strong turnout for this week's call as we get fully in the swing of Ango and Jukai this coming week! After our traditional meal chant and robe verses we had a short sit of zazen in honor of all those affected by war and terrorism in the wake of the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. Following the sit as we turned to matters of practice, one person told the story of how he ordered a part to fix the casing to his iphone only to have it break again within a few minutes! Another participant described his week working with kids who have learning differences and the difficulties that can bring while someone else discussed how he found himself trying to wash dishes quickly so he could get to some zazen, only to see how much irony there was in trying to become mindful by not being mindful! One of our regulars over the years also returned this week just as he prepares to go back to work after being injured a few months ago...and wonders if he'll remember how to do his job (we all assured him he would!). Other topics included Stephen Colbert's ultimate spoiler (spoiler alert: we all die!), getting up to get the kids to school, gaming, sewing, and shiny new toys.

    Hope you can join us at the next tea party!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    I am wondering, is there a possibly or even an interest in having multiple Tea Party times? For me, Sunday is a major family day where we try to limit technology/media and outside activities, so I don't join in. Not to mention of course the many different time zones of our sangha.

    Just wanted to toss it out there for discussion.

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hi.

    Here's this week Treeleaf Teaparty report

    After a short sitting of zazen, we talked about practice, Ango/PPE and moved on to main talk.
    Due to technical difficulties the headlinerlist we usually provide is lost in space and time.

    Thank you for your practice.

    I wanted to add to matt,s comment. Due to family commitments I couldn,t make the tea party this evening due to the time it is on at. I was also wondering about the possibility of the multiple tea party idea, maybe staggering another one a couple of hours later?

    Thanks, Jundo. I don't want to make things more confusing for people. Just curious if (and how many) others were not joining in simply because the day or time were not good for them.

    Thanks,

    The day is actually good as far as available time for me...just find that by 2pm I'm normally involved in some other family happening. I've only been able to make a couple of them.

    The one nice thing I would mention however is that I think it's probably quite alright to pop in late and/or out early....as time permits.

    Re: Sharing Helpful and Insightful Tips (was The Tea Party)

    Hiyas
    Yeah, like Shawn just said its fine to be early/late as its not that rigid... just at the time things are set we go through a quick routine and so on.

    If time is a major issue holding other folks back from participating well yeah for our unique "time-shifting" capabilities here at Treeleaf - We have discussed offering an offset time that may be more suitable for folks in the Americas here... perhaps do another one, later on in the evening one Sunday or even Saturday. Really would just need Feed back on what is suitable for most that would like to join in.

    Perhaps an informal poll to see which day and time for a secondary Tea Party?

    Hi all,

    In case people don't know, we do have a short ceremony and sit at the beginning of each tea party, but even so it is fine to stop in for any amount of time, even 5 minutes, just to say hello. I know folks have commitments, most often family, but I have found that my time with my family is very much enhanced by my participtaion in the tea party and my wife is now the one who reminds me of the time. She has noticed a big difference in how I interact with her and my kids on the weekend and apparently it's quite noticable when I don't attend.

    And to those who are asking for a time change I would simply suggest that you stop by for 5 minutes and see what goes on. I have always thought that a monthly alternate tea party time was an excellent idea and hope folks will post in this thread about times they would find doable, but if you can find just a few moments to tell us "in person" too that would be awesome.

    Always hope to hear some new voices!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    I will try to drop-in this Sunday, but like I said we are usually tied up with family activities (not often at our place) on Sundays.

    Generally, for me, any time after 8pm EST (East coast US) is good.

    Hi Undo,

    We use Skype, but no webcam is needed since we do audio only.

    Just send a PM to Fugen with your Skype ID so he can add you to the call.
