    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 7pm, Los Angeles 4pm (Friday night), London midnight and Paris 1am (early Saturday morning)

    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times ...

    But FEAR NOT if not possible for you to join 'live' in your location at those times, as the entire sitting is recorded in 'REAL TIME' and available for full participation 'on demand' at any time after that, no different from the 'live' sitting :

    'REAL TIME' recorded 'ANY TIME' version link is here:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN



    OUR 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

    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 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 words of the Chants we will recite at the following link:

    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

    Hi All,

    After a slight hiatus in sitting our Zazenkai I'll be there this evening for the live cast. The wife and I underwent new negotiations. She will now be taking up yoga once a week and I get to sit our live Zazenkai
    A great compromise to start off the new year right! Looking forward to sitting with everyone tonight.

    Gassho,
    John

    My eternal thanks to all who sat, are sitting, or will sit....and it's good to have Jundo home, even though he really never left.

    I'm bummed I missed this live (I was confused by the date/time). But I really enjoyed my first Zazenkai.

    Thanks Jundo, and welcome back
