WELCOME ...

... to the "ALL_ONLINE" 'Treeleaf Two-Day Rohatsu Retreat', which was held by LIVE NETCAST over the weekend of DECEMBER 5 and 6, 2009.

 


HOWEVER,
you may still join the Retreat and sit-a-long at ANY TIME 'ON DEMAND', by the real time recorded version below (no different from the original!). The full sitting schedule is below, and you may download our Chant Book here, and various retreat pointers here.


Recordings of each segment are posted below in time order ... and if we drop from mind all thought of 'now' 'then' 'here' and 'there' ... we will all be sitting together right when and where you are!

This Retreat is especially dedicated to my Teacher, Gudo Wafu Nishijima, who turned 90 years old this week!

We thank Rev. Taigu for coming all the way by train from the other side of Japan to join us. However, because of a delay in his travels, please excuse his absence during part of the first day.

In case of technical problems. please just go along as best you can with the schedule ... we sit with "what is".. .

OF COURSE, EVERYTHING IN MODERATION ... if the sitting ever feels too much, be sure to walk lots and lots of Kinhin (even if during a sitting period). And if the whole retreat becomes too much, or you feel ill, you may slow down ... , spread things out, shorten the sittings ... or STOP! Be sure that you have someone close by whom you can call, or who can check on you from time to time. If there is any question about health, do not take any chances.

Please write and let me know how it goes. Gassho, Jundo
