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

LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:

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:

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!

EDIT: Kyonin will be graciously stepping in for me tonight as my wife is sick and I'll be watching the boys while she stops at urgent care after going to work today (when I told her not to!).

Hi all I came at the end there when I could, but I didn't see the normal video recorded version here on the site. Hoping to sit with it when I can. Perfectly imperfect; made me figure out how to join live.

Does anyone else NOT SEE the normal recorded version posted???


Nice to see all.

Thanks to all who sat and will sit. My power went out during Kinhin and then again during the second Zazen. So, if I disturbed anybody by logging in during Zazen, I am sincerely sorry. Gassho, William

Don't worry William, everything perfect as it is, as always.. I had to stand up to attend something in the middle of 2nd Zazen... no problem, back to the cushion, all things as they are...

Much Metta everyone

Hi Clark,

Yeah, I was also here but not here for the live YT version. Don't know what went wrong but continued as if it was live but unseen. This is my best alternative to G+, too many boot offs when I have tried it before. Oh well, I am here or was here or something like that. Have a great weekend to everyone.

Hi guys,

I'm sorry to report last G+ session completely fried my laptop. It seems it is beyond saving and because this poses a rather big financial problem for me/us, I will have no video comunication for some time. (I'm typing this on our old 2004 desktop). So accepting things as they are, joining Zazenkai, sittings, dokusan and all other live connections have become quite impossible for now. I will sit and follow the postings on the forum of course but other than that you will have to do without my preseance. I wll try and find a way to solve this but right now I can't see how. Very sorry about this happening during this great Ango period :crushed:.

A lesson in Impermanence, Enkyo. You are still sitting with us, quite clearly visible in all our hearts.

We had a short Heart Sutra Memorial Service awhile back for all our old, burned out computers and equipment at Treeleaf. They kept this place going.

Also, thank you to my cat/sitting partner, Midnight, for demonstrating stillness to me yet again.
