... and to be visible at the following link during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

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!

Not sure if I'll be there as my parents are making a surprise visit. Either way, lots of opportunity for practice. :)

Due to "technical non-difficulties", the usually reliable Google+ seems to have had some issues. Well, keep on sitting.

Seems that Yugen kept things going, thanks for stepping in.

We sit as what is.

Gassho, J

Thank you Jundo, Yugen, and all. This was my first live Zazenkai.
Microphone difficulties meant I could only sit and bow. ^_^

Thank you to everyone who sat tonight. Sorry Ctenny, when Yugen mentioned a new person and no one responded I thought he must be referencing me as I am also very new to Treeleaf but apparently it was due to your mic difficulties that you couldn't acknowledge. So welcome and thank you for sitting with us.
