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:

00:45 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 Nindo,

Click the "Start a Hangout" button on the right hand column of G+. Once it loads that page, you should see a list of anyone in your Circle who has already started a hangout. You can then join in. Or, if no one has started one yet, you can start one yourself, and they can then join you.

You can also invite people from the Hangout page. Or if someone has invited you, and you try to start your own, it will let you know so you can just join the one already started.

Hope that helps!

Hi Ray,

First of all, you do not need Google+ to join the Zazenkai, which takes place in a little over 6 hours from now (times are listed for various time zones). Use the link above to join the broadcast at justin.tv at the appropriate time or watch the recorded version at a later time (Jundo will post links).

As for the various sittings people have posted on the schedule, you need to add these folks to your "circles" and the quickest way to do that is to join the "Treeleaf Sangha" profile that most of the Treeleafers on Google+ are connected to. When you are on the main page for Google+ there is a box at the top that says "Search Google+" and in that box type "Treeleaf Sangha".

Hope that helps!

Gassho,
Dosho

So sorry I forgot today was Friday! Came in from working on a tortoise table in the garage for dinner when it hit me.

Will have to sit this one in the morning.

Hope it went well.
