Sit-a-Long with Jundo: Zazen for Beginners (We're All Beginners) I

| No Comments
We begin 'Zazen for Beginners (We're All Beginners)' ...


We'll talk the basics of 'Just Sitting' Shikantaza Zazen ...


...
There's a bit more to it than 'just sitting' !!


In a series of talks over the coming days, I will discuss the "ins" and "outs" of "Just Sitting", which all has to do a lot with dropping thoughts like "in" and "out". I'll talk about where you can expect to "go" in your Practice, and what you can expect to attain, which is, of course, ABSOLUTELY NO WHERE AND NOTHING!

These talks are meant for beginners in "Just Sitting" Shikantaza Zazen and newcomers to Treeleaf Sangha. Shikantaza is our central Practice at Treeleaf. But I hope that both new folks and old timers will give a listen. We are all, of course, ever beginning now and now and now, with 'Beginner's Mind'  ...

Today, we'll see how "Just Sitting" is much like "just stopping"
to hit own's own hand with a hammer ... cause it feels so good when ya stop!
