FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS ARE POSTED AT THIS LINK (http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/showthread.php?10200-How-to-Join-GOOGLE-for-Zazenkai). WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG VIA THE ABOVE SCREEN. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication

00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
01:25 – 01:30 FOUR VOWS & VERSE OF ATONEMENT

As you can see, our Zazenkai consists of chanting the 'Heart Sutra' in English (the words are at the link below), some full floor prostrations in sets of three (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), followed by our Dedication, Zazen twice for about 30 minutes each, with 10 minutes of Kinhin in between, and we end the sitting with 'The Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'.

Please download and print out the Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

So, please join us as soon as you can, and we will keep a Zafu open for you.

Remember, when we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

The stars and planets have aligned... and so has this event and my wife's work schedule so I will be there with bells on live for once in a long while!

Just a technical question for next time, with our new Community at Google+ ...

For our Zazenkai next week, do I invite people to the hangout by clicking "Sangha Members" (which seems to have 110 members) or "Treeleaf Zendo" (which seems to have 75 folks in it)? Next to "Sangha Members" there is a mark that looks like a circle, and next to "Treeleaf Zendo" a circle with three dots inside. Here is a screen cap ...

Jundo,

I believe you'd want to select the "Treeleaf Zendo" one, although my understanding from Myoku is that if you are on the Treeleaf Zendo Community webpage andstart a hangout, you don't have to invite anyone. But as I wrote him earlier today, my understanding of G+ is spotty at best. So, hopefully he will chime in here.

Gassho,
Dosho

Gassho and thank you everyone,

The symbols are for Circle and Community, you have more in the Circles as not everyone yet moved to the Community (especially not those who are no longer active or have not visited google for a while). The rule is to just start a hangout from the community page to invite the whole community, with one exception: you not yet can start a Hangout on Air from there, so Jundo should start as usual and invite the Community.

Another technical question. Can someone post instructions on how to sit along with the pre-recorded version in a hangout? I know we've done it, but I dont know how to stream the recorded version into a current hangout. Gassho.

Never mind. I see they've made it nice and easy for us.
