Hi all,
I am "on duty" at Great River Sangha this evening so I will be unable to sit alive.... I will sit the Zazenkai tomorrow (Saturday evening) US time. I will be back next Friday to join you live.

A deep bow,
Yugen

Thank you Jundo and everyone.
The video timed out after 30 mins so I must have sat the first sit for an hour!
Oh well. Have a good weekend everyone.

Oh well. Have a good weekend everyone.

I just replaced the link to Justin.tv with Youtube (thank you, Dokan, for your help), and I believe that will solve many of the issues people have been having.

We'll try to figure out how to do this more smoothly in the coming weeks.

Thanks for the update Jundo and to Dokan and all for making all these connections possible. One day I may even understand how to use some of them(Google+)!

That didn't feel silly at all. You all felt very real.
I loved the background sound of the wind blowing, birds singing, water dripping, dog barking, stars twinkling.
Lovely sit. Lovely evening.
Thanks for sitting. Thank you everybody.

Well at least this time it played for a few minutes. 8) I think my connection speed is slow that's why.

As Fugen likes to say, it's all good practice.

Thank you Jundo Sensei and all fellow sitters. Zazen radio was great :D
Youtube was wonderful to playback the recorded version. Much more stable than JustinTV(and ad free!).
