We will have a few talks over the coming week or two, in preparation for our 'Treeleaf Two-Day Online Retreat'
, scheduled for LIVE NETCAST over the weekend of
DECEMBER 5 and 6, 2009!
(and available in recorded form after that, for participation any time 'On Demand').
The Retreat is in celebration of our all-online JUKAI (Undertaking the Precepts Ceremony, to be in early January) as well as ROHATSU (the celebreation of Shakyamuni's Moment of Realization under the Bodhi Tree some 2,500 years ago, traditionally celebrated in Japan during the week leading up to December 8th)
If you would like more information on the Retreat and Jukai (you can
sit the retreat even if you are not participating in Jukai), please
watch for information here and in our forum ...
Talks here in the coming days will cover such hot topics as "How to Chant" "How to Oryoki" "How to Bow" "How to Go To The Bathroom during a Retreat" (Really) and many others.
coming days, some additional materials (including the 'Chant Book' and
various "Retreat Pointers") will be available for download. Watch for
them here, on this "Sit-a-Long" blog.
