Thread: What online Zen practice looks like

    What online Zen practice looks like

    I'd like to start a collection of photos representing our sangha and how we practice. If you have any photos of your altar, your meditation space, your zafu, yourself meditating, sewing practice, oriyoki, etc etc, and you would not mind me using the photos publicly, would you post them here?

    Thank you.

    I just fold this throw pillow in half and it makes for a nice zafu.

    This is where I sit when the house is quiet, when it's not so I'm tucked away in another room somewhere.
    The Buddha statue is not really a traditional one that would normally be associated with Soto Zen but I like it because Buddha is touching the earth to remain grounded in reality, it reminds me during Zazen to do the same and I do need reminding. :wink:

    OK, sorry for the massive images yesterday. Here's my set-up these days at home. Will try to get the car this week.

    Hi Kaishin - I'm pinning them to a board here:
    http://pinterest.com/aebaxter/what-virt ... ooks-like/

    I also hope to feature the set of photos on treeleaf.org eventually. I think the web team is looking into that, maybe?
