    Hello All,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast 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 on the following screen 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




    Verse of Atonement and Four Vows Only



    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:

    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication
    00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN

    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):

    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!


    Gassho, Jundo

    I've had a very long and challenging week with my youngest son so I don't think I will be able to make it tonight. I'll sit with the recording either on the weekend or early next week. Have a lovely sit, everyone.

    I was able to join after first kinhin, but it was only Jundo and I. My aching legs said it was a long Zazen, and sure enough, I was the only one there 40 minutes in! :-)

    Thank you all for your practice.

    Hi
    I was able to sit and view yesterday's Zazenkai. Thank you Treeleaf for dedicating the zazen to those who have lost loved ones, and as Jundo so aptly pointed out, that is all of us. The video is quiet and respectful as other Zazenkai I have followed with video.

    Thank you all for sitting and practicing with the special qualities of G+.
    Thanks Jundo for doing all the tasks. Though it must be hard work I admire, I enjoy watching the Jundo-solo-kais very much, too.
    The structure of the ceremony becomes clearer, without time shifts on my end.
