    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 7pm, Los Angeles 4pm (Friday night), London midnight and Paris 1am (early Saturday morning)

    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN




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

    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'.

    or

    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!

    Oh, and for the first time since joining the Google+ group, I received an invitation this week, informing me of Saturday's session; I hope that means it will be easier to get 'in' this week. I fear that the 'Google+ koan' will always be something of a mystery to me...

    Thank you all so much for practicing together. Enjoy the coming week.

    Bryson, I often see the public stream in my feed, but have to actually go to the Treeleaf profile itself to see the hangout that I can join.

    Thanks everyone, especially my brother Kyonin for ringing the bells!

    Besides the on screen cameo by my son Brady and off screen by my son Chase, one of our cats (Abby) makes an appearance in the bottom left corner at the 1:25:00 mark. She was a bit confused by the furniture being in different places, which shows on her face!

    So wonderful to practice with all of you.

    Good morning, I just returned from a Latin (Catholic) mass and will now sit the Zazenkai. I am dedicating both to my grandfather who wrote his last letter on Nov 22nd, 1944 and then went missing in action. It is assumed he died on the same day.
    Thank you all. Blessed be.
