    Hi Undo,

    I just tested 2, 4 and 5 and they are working fine. I think the difficulty is just what it says: YOU NEED TO UPDATE YOUR FLASH.
    I was using an ipad ops:

    Shawn and I will both be sitting "live" (Japan time) and should be on Google+, or at least I will be during the zazen periods at the least.

    Jep Jep...I'll have mine up and online. G+ has a pop up that asks if you are there around 60 minutes or so. As long as I don't miss that I plan on being on the entire sesshin.

    I will try and join you if you don't mind me droping in on European time?
    I've not used G+ before, do I need an invite or can I just search for treeleaf group?

    Thanks

    Of course I don't mind! I open my sits to Treeleafers. We have a Treeleaf group on G+ so if you get setup just add the Treeleaf user and you should be able to see everyone else.

    Re: DATE CHANGE: Our 'AT HOME' 2-day ROHATSU RETREAT Dec 4-5

    Been working on re-arranging our spare bedroom to be a makeshift Zendo for this weekend and I had a question about the Buddha placement. I had read in the guide that the altar should be in the middle of the room. Why is that? Just curious as to the logic/reasoning behind the placement. I've seen it mostly placed at the end of the zendo in the middle of the room but not in the middle. I'm assuming this is the traditional placement and the middle/far-end placement is a western adaptation?

    I had to move the bed and some end tables and a bookshelf but was able to make room and still have enough for computers, zabuton/zafu and kinhin space. Also, it feels a bit funny sitting behind the Buddha...back to back as it were. So used to sitting in front of the altar all these years.

    The Buddha does not have to be in the middle of the room, and can be somewhere else. It comes just from the traditional design of large Zendos with Manjusri Bodhisattva (or a Buddha) in the middle ...



    ... and is meant to help to avoid walking directly in front of the Buddha/Manjusri, as one can walk respectfully behind to cross the room.

    However, it is fine to have the Buddha elsewhere in the room, and if you have to walk in front of your statue to pass, maybe give a momentary pause and a little Gassho or nod of the head as "Excuse me". That is traditional too.

    Before the retreat, please look at this short page published by Soto-shu of manners in the Zendo, see if you can pick up a couple of pointers. It is a little different from most folks, cause in Japan (as in our Tsukuba Zendo) the sitting is on raised platforms, not on the floor like most folks in the West.

    http://global.sotozen-net.or.jp/eng/pra ... n/manners/

    Not everyone faces the wall either, but it is good to do so if you can. Soto Tradition is to face the wall, but in the west it is more of a mixed picture.

    Gassho, Jundo

    Re: DATE CHANGE: Our 'AT HOME' 2-day ROHATSU RETREAT Dec 4-5

    Hi All,

    Spent the morning and then the rest of the day going over all the material for Rohatsu. It was great to review everything because I even found a number of things to adjust which I have been doing incorrectly during Zazenkai ops:
    My Oryoki set is all made up and I went over the video multiple times to practice throughout the day. Also Going to try to practice at least once each day prior to Rohatsu!

    My schedule for Rohatsu will be as Follows:
    Rohatsu starts 6am Sunday Japan time, which will be 3pm Saturday my time. I'll sit 3pm-10pm(Live)

    Sleep from 10pm-5:30am, Sunday

    Start 6am-3pm(Recorded version, from day #1, of what I missed while sleeping)

    3pm(Start of day #2 with Taigu Sensei)-10pm(Live)

    Sleep 10pm-5:30am, Monday(Vacation day, off from work)

    Start 6am-3pm(Recorded version, from day #2, of what I missed while sleeping)

    3pm-The rest of the week(Giving my wife lots of extra attention! )

    Gassho,
    John

    Just to say again ... we do recommend a mix of 'live' and 'recorded' segments so that everyone can sleep in a natural cycle.

    No worries!

    After you've signed up and can access G+, there is a link on the right side of the page that says "Start a hangout". When you click that it'll open up a new window where you can start a new hangout, or, on the right side of that pop-up join one that is already going, should someone be sitting already.

    http://www.treeleaf.org/sit-a-long/with ... eafat.html

    You will see a link to the live netcast, and this is also where links will be posted to each portion of the retreat as we go along, updating the links during the two days.

    The schedule is exactly the same a last year. Equivalent times are posted for North America and Europe so that folks can calculate which portions can be joined 'live' and which portions can be joined 'recorded' (but stil alive!).

    BE THERE AND SIT SQUARE!

    Just a note that I corrected the schedule just now to be Sunday-Monday (not Saturday-Sunday as last year). Otherwise, the times are the same.

    Hey y'all, I'll be on G+ Sunday from 0600-2330 EST, with breaks for samu & such. Will be sitting the second day on Monday, from approx. 0600-2130 EST. Looking forward to sitting with everyone.

    OK, think I have everything ready. Haven't had much time to practice Oryoki, so will just do my best to follow along. My bum ankle is acting up a bit with the cold weather, so may have to do more kinhin than listed, but hopefully it will hold up!

    Hope everyone has a "not good, not bad" Rohatsu!

    Jundo/Taigu/All - thank you. This was the first group sitting I have been part of in over 10 years. My 2 am starts worked out OK with some naps thrown in here and there. Got most of the streaming too. From out of nowhere I came to finally realise the significance in sewing the rakusu.

    kind regards

    Well done to those completing the whole retreat. I dropped in once live and twice recorded on Sunday and late Saturday but was tied by 'other things'. I will make better efforts to arrange my time next time around.

    Thank you to every-One (get it? ... "every-ONe" ... 8) ) who sat sits will sit this retreat.

    I am in communist China today, where I cannot access Youtube or Justin.tv at all, so I cannot access the Retreat from here ... but I see it in my heart.

    So glad this is posted online... just no way I could do this in real time. Thankfully I will be able to catch up. Although there is noting quite like the sense of community when done as it happens, I guess the point is to drop all that. Deep gratitude to Jundo for making this available and everyone at Treeleaf who participated.

    Hi all,

    I just wanted to let folks know that I'll be sitting the retreat this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, substituting US Eastern Time for Japan time on the schedule. Of course those who have already sat as well as those who will sit later are always sitting with me in every moment, but I still thought it worth mentioning.

    Deep bows to all who undertake this retreat, anywhere in space and time...all right here!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    Hey Dosho,

    Perhaps I will try to catch a segment with you. Can't do the entire retreat this weekend as I got talked into being "Santa" for an animal rescue organization, which I have been working for (my Samu). In addition, my dad went in the hospital today and not sure when I will be needed. Nevertheless, if Sunday looks good I may try to coordinate.....I will convert to Eastern Standard time as well. Even if we don't connect we may be sitting at the same time. Hope to get the retreat in its entirety at a bit later date.

    Gassho,
    Jisen/BrianW

    Hi all,

    Just a quick note to say that I got through the first day of the retreat but wasn't feeling very well throughout, so I'll have to do the second day another time.

    Off to bed...my thanks to all who have sat, are sitting, or will sit!

    Well after a week off visiting my parents, a week working to close the year at my little business and a week just taking it easy, I am finally ready to do Rohatsu.

    I will do it tomorrow (Dec. 21st) and on Thursday (Dec. 22nd).

    It's my first Rohatsu, so wish me luck!

    It all went pretty good. I have done retreats before but this one was intense! I enjoyed it a lot and learned a lot as well.

    It gave me lots to think about.
