    This is fantastic. I'm in for at least the afternoon portion. Probably join you from around 11:00 GMT. Thanks for sharing your practice Myozan!

    Great way to take the initiative Myozan!

    Count me in!! That's my weekend to work but I've got a plan
    I read online that you can join a hangout via the google+ app. Our hospital has wifi and a private prayer room. I will use my break times to sit along
    In the evening I will spend my usual sitting time to join in once again.

    Downloaded the app. Now I just have to figure out how to actually join a hangout from it!

    Gassho,
    John

    Thank you for the invitation, Myozan. Coincidentally, I'm sitting a day long zazenkai with the local zen group here on 5 February. I'll join y'all for a couple of sits, however. This is a great idea; hope it goes well. I'd like to see more of this type of thing down the line.

    gassho,

    Re: One day intensive sitting (February 4th)

    I won't be able to sit on the 4th. I will be judging at our winter Kyuki-Do tournament which is an all-day event. Will this be recorded to sit at a later time?

    Re: One day intensive sitting (February 4th)

    Hi Ekai,
    I don't plan to record it ... not sure I even know how! It'll just stream live on Google+. Anyone that has me (M yozan Kodo) in a Google+ 'Circle' can see and join in. Sorry about that Ekai.

    Also, Taigu will be recording a new teaching for the one day sit, so it won't be something you'll have seen before on YouTube.

    Gassho
    Myozan

    PS: Looking forward to sit with you Michael.

    Yep - last time sat with this group I was on Japan time; starting at 2 am. This time round I end at 2 am. Combine them I have done my first all-nighter. Ha! (kidding) But in a few weeks time on NZ time I am as near as dammit to Japan time (hee hee)

    Re: One day intensive sitting (February 4th)

    Hi.
    It’s great that many of us will be sitting together for this. The usual Zendo etiquette will apply:
    Apart from the Heart Sutra and Oryoki chants, this one day retreat will be in silence (except for the stretching time, tea time; free time and dinner time).

    Please enter the ‘Zendo’ at the start or end of a sitting (as much as possible). Kinhin is a good time to join or leave, or to go for a toilet break.

    We will follow the schedule to the minute as closely as possible. The morning of the retreat I’ll Google “Current Time in Dublin Ireland” and use that as the official clock time.

    I’ll ring the bells to start and end sittings etc. The Heart Sutra will be chanted together. We can take turns leading the chant for the two Oryoki sessions?

    Okesa / rakusu will be put on at the end of the first morning session, with the ‘Sutra of the Kesa’ chanted in Japanese three times by all together.

    Oryoki will follow Jundo’s instructions for simplified Oryoki (like our Rohatsu retreat).
    All chants will be from the Treeleaf Chant Book.

    Also, I understand how hard it is to get a full free day for formal practice like this. It is certainly rare for me, what with family life. So, I understand most people will only be able to join for a little part of the day. But that company will be most welcome!

    I’ll finalise the schedule and post the Refuges in Pali closer to February 4th.

    Gassho

    As it currently looks I will join you for the first part, right from morning until around noon.

    Hi Myozan

    I will be sitting in a motel room in Islamabad – the first leg on my long haul home. I will sit your morning program in real time but will be on my to the airport during your afternoon and may sit something with you while waiting to board. Anything is possible I will not have a computer connection.

    Kind Regards

    Re: One day intensive sitting (February 4th)

    Great initiative indeed. Thank you Myokan. Count on me for the morning part. Daddy-zazen-samu will start between 8:30 and 9:00 and goes on for the rest of the day.

    Some minor modifications for me. I will still join you around 11, but will have to cut out early for a shakuhachi retreat...but will be suizen-ing in spirit.

    So glad we'll be sitting together. Fantastic!

    Dokan, will you be around for Oryoki lunch? Anyone else planning on doing the Oryoki? Be great to share the chanting.

    Also, after each Dharma talk we should have a short discussion.

    Plan to post the final schedule in a few days time. Any changes will be minor.

    And will post the chant in Pali too.

    Gassho,
    Myozan

    Re: One day intensive sitting (February 4th)

    Thank you Myozan!

    I'll be attending most of the day! I'll have to do a samu out of home for two hours, but otherwise I'll be there!

    My pc is a bit old and my connection isn't at the best, so maybe I'll have to do parts without receiving the live video... if it happens I'll just follow the schedule!

    Have a nice day everyone,
    deep gassho,

    See you in the morning guys.
    Peter: cool. Take the morning Oryoki chant. Great. And the Heart Sutra is in Japanese.
    Jinyu: look forward to sitting with you too.

    It was a wonderful day's sitting. Deep bows to Peter Myoku (who sat a large portion of the day), Jinyu, Richard Shokai Maxwell, Chris Amirault, JR Brisson, Chris Armel and Shawn Dokan Edwards. Thank you for your practice. And thanks to Jundo for guidance in the preparation of today and my teacher Taigu, who offered an amazing new Dharma talk especially for this one day intensive. Many thanks.

    Re: One day intensive sitting (February 4th)

    Many thanks to all sitting (chanting, samu-ing etc) , to Myozan making this happen and all involved. I was quite speechless after Taigu's talk, which is a good thing.

    Re: One day intensive sitting (February 4th)

    We went out of town for the weekend, I expected to use the mobile phone to access Google + but no Internet access finally, but I followed the first part offline, from 5:00 am to a little before seven, when my young but very bright zen teacher gave me a very simple Dharma talk: "Paaaapaaaa! Hooolaaaa!" (daaddy! Heelloooo!)

    I missed you all, but then, in a sense, I felt like being together with you
