Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (early Saturday morning))

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:

00:00 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

Good to see Will gave the okay! Off work this weekend but have a Tea demonstration Saturday. I'll be sitting Sunday morning. That is of course, if the world doesn't end :shock: :lol:
Because that's the only way I would miss it!

Gassho,

Hi all,

I have my family in town this weekend, but popped in for the first round of zazen. Very theraputic, although not the point...more about doing something that has become like drinking water or breathing. Just something I do. So, getting to that point with zazen...very theraputic. :)

My deepest gratitude to all who sit.

Gassho,
Dosho

How is it that all this time I've never heard Will's amazing Heart Sutra before? Hmmm . . . maybe we should have a thread or section for our members' artistic (musical/video) contributions . . . 8)

Thanks for the sit.
