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 :

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!

See you all tomorrow morning. A sick roommate probably wouldn't appreciate the chanting while trying to sleep, nor the bells :P

My first time to sit with all of you. Man that was tough! I'm used to twenty minutes a day, max. Very educational, though. 8)

Thanks everyone! _/|_

I can relate. The first zazenkai I did here at Treeleaf was the 4 hour one and my normal daily is only 30 minutes. Kinhin is much welcomed on that one. :-)

Hi all,

Thanks for the sit...I was absent for awhile during the second round of zazen, but unbeknownst to me in a corner of the bedroom or to my wife and oldest son who were in the living room with him, my youngest had yanked the router off a shelf and pulled the cord from the back of the unit! But I just sat and fixed it as we headed into verses and vows. :)

My gratitude to all who have sat, are sitting, or will sit. Deep bows to you and your practice.

Gassho,
Dosho

Sat today . . . after a rebellious (or just lazy?) week of no-sitting. Nice to get back into it though.
