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

00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
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!

I see two on G+ right now, and joining either one just says "waiting for others to join...". Anyone else having troubles?

Thanks to all who sat live and who will sit later. I got dropped for about two minutes during the Heart Sutra recitation, but I got right back in. Gassho, William

I had trouble with joining with audio and video. It finally connected during first Zazen, and then gave up again during second Zazen. So I just watched the stream for the rest of the Zazenkai. My rural ISP might not be up to joining the hangouts. ^_^

Thank you Jundo and everyone else!

Hi all,
Sat along this morning. But I hear no sound. Might be my iPad. Not sure.

Hello,

thank you all for your practise. The company I work for moved our offices and everything to new premises during the last two days, well, including me and my stuff....so that I'll sit the Zazenkai today instead.

All the best and Gassho,
