Hello All,

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)

... and to be visible at the following link during those times and any time thereafter ...

FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE POSTED FOR FUTURE WEEKS. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

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 about 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 Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

Chant Book (PDF) (http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=447&d=1341018471)

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!

Google+ released a new feature that I am testing so if you are on G+ please take a look:

Hmm..maybe you aren't logged in to G+? Had my wife just try it and it seemed to work ok.

You can also maybe try just the events page instead of the direct link to the invite:
https://plus.google.com/b/116930448607190706458/events

Gassho,

Dokan

PS - Thanks for the testing...the invite is restricted so if you're not logged in it's working as intended. :)

Thanks for looking into it Dokan.
Perhaps it's because I'm trying to access the link through the web browser on my phone? All I know is that each time I tried I got this message..
The requested URL was not found on this server. Thatís all we know.

Will try it for the first time this week but, as it'll be 1am here, I'll definitely have to drop time & place!

Hi Ade,

You can also sit with the recorded version ... truly dropping thought of now and then, just the same as the "live" sitting. It is "live" too ... just in its own way. If you do get too tired during the live sitting, don't feel that you can't sit it later.

Gassho, J

PS- Dokan, does this new feature you discovered change the procedure for me tomorrow? I barely learned how to do this last week! :)

Hi Jundo,

I think that's what I'll do, otherwise I'll be headbutting the wall!

Absolutely not! Proceed as normal. It is completely separate. I believe that people that accept the invite will get a pop up reminding them and there will be an option to click "Hangout"..but won't really know until tonight. But again, for you, nothing changes...

Thanks

I won't be able to sit tonight with you guys.

I am traveling and visiting my parents and they don't have connection at home. Will try to do sit an unplugged zazenkai in tonight.

Same happend here Shohei! Dokan posted, on one of the forums, a download to prevent G+ from giving you the boot for being "idle". Sounds awesome(if you don't forget to install it like I did. Doh!).

So the Event portion of the invite worked very well! Here's a couple screen shots of the notification:

On my phone:
449

And on the Google+ page:
448

Wondering if they'll implement the feature where it can be reoccurring.

By the way Jundo, you have "Follow my face." checked on your Logitech settings for your camera. It moves the camera focus on who is talking.

Thanks for the sit tonight everyone!
