Since we began sitting here at Shambhala SunSpace a few days ago, a few folks have written me to ask about our Treeleaf Sangha. Some have asked what a "Sit-A-Long" is, and how and when to do that.
Treeleaf was designed specifically as an online practice place for Zen practitioners who cannot easily commute to a Zen Center due to health concerns, living in remote areas, or childcare and family needs (please go to www.treeleaf.org for more information). Of course, anyone is welcome who might find our sittings encouraging to their ongoing Zazen Practice ... and there is always a Zafu open.
Treeleaf seeks to provide Zazen sittings, retreats, discussion, interaction with a teacher, and all other activities of a Zen Buddhist Sangha, all fully online. And a "sit-a-long" is just sitting Shikantaza Zazen with me, here on Shambhala SunSpace.
I appreciate the company. Click through here to see today's talk, and to "sit-a-long."
