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:

00:55 – 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!

Thanks to all who sat and will sit. We were having a massive thunderstorm in Tallahassee tonight. I thought the roof was going to blow off the house during the second Zazen sitting. The power went out briefly, but somehow I kept with the live feed. Gassho, William

Sat this morning with all of you. I had to stop and fix breakfast after the first kinhin round, but I decided to bring down the laptop figuring even if I couldn't join in the second round I could still finish the meal prep in time to at least join in the closing ceremony. But then my son came down in the middle of the second sitting and sat down at the breakfast table so I finally just bowed and logged off. It's all good though - I haven't sat in a zazenkai in ages and it feels good to do it again.
