Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE TODAY from 10pm Japan time (that is New York 9am, Los Angeles 6am, London 2pm and Paris 3pm, SATURDAY) ...
... and to be visible at the following link during those times ...

LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at USTREAM:

But FEAR NOT if not possible for you to join 'live' in your location at those times, as the entire sitting is recorded in 'REAL TIME' and available for full participation 'on demand' at any time after that, no different from the 'live' sitting :

'REAL TIME' recorded 'ANY TIME' version link is here:

OUR 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

00:00 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English ONLY) and Dedication
00:15 00:45 ZAZEN
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 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 words of the Chants we will recite at the following link:

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!


Gassho, Jundo

Hiya
Jundo, thanks for the Scolding hugs and kisses... Home :)
I too sat recorded and will for the next while as my wife is teaching art classes for children here and our little guy, is um a bit to rambunctious for art class and to be free wheeling for longer than 5 seconds... So my apologies and many thanks!

No apologies needed or scolding intended for those who sit with the recorded version! Sitting with the "recorded version" is sitting with us, same place same time.

The scolding was for those who don't come to sit at all! :evil:

Hi all,

I just sat with the recorded version after allowing myself the luxury of sleeping in this morning while sick with a cold (along with everyone else in the house!). Feeling much more rested and frazzled now, so thank you all for a wonderful sit. :)

Gassho,
Dosho

Wasn't able to sit with y'all for the recorded version this week. I sat a zazenkai from July on Friday. Even so, good to sit with you all. :D

Hi Jundo,
Just sat and got the scolding. With no time and distance to seperate us, you are never alone on your zafu!
Thanks and gassho,
