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 :

OUR 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

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

Hi Jundo,

Sat Saturday morning Zazenkai on Saturday morning...same Saturday, same morning, same Zazenkai.

It was so good to see real live folks, other than your wonderful self, in the Zendo. I do miss hearing the crickets, but the birds were nice.

Gassho,
