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

I will be sitting at a Vipassana retreat tonight and over the weekend. This is a rare opportunity to sit for a longer stretch of time together with others in this town. I will hold you all in my heart :)

Thank you to Jundo and all my fellow Treeleafers! I was sitting with each of you and it was a pleasure to do so!

And thanks also to Dewey, my beloved feline companion, who sat with me today unlike any other time I can remember. The company was most welcome. :)

Deep bows to all who practice.

Gassho,
Dosho

Thank you. Had to cut this one short due to pain, but able to sit longer and longer with each day as I recover. Now it is time for some putting-the-kids-to-bed-zazen :mrgreen:
