    Hello All,

    ... 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




    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'.

    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!

    Hi guys,

    I'll do my best to get on time to sit live. I'm working until late tonight.

    If I can't, I'll sit this on Saturday night

    I plan to sit Zazenkai live at 8. There is an hour to hour care situation at home. Depending how things unfold here, I may have to sit Zazenkai at a later time .

    I am thinking of moving the start time of Zazenkai an hour or two later for the future, maybe switching AM and PM, and even changing the day to Sunday here (Saturday night for most folks). Many possibilities.

    I don't want to discuss this now, but let us talk about it later this week in a thread.

    I just wish I could find a Goldilocks time that would conveniently cover America, Europe and here.

    Zen folks don't believe in "time", past present or future ... and yet we are subject to time zones (A Koan).
