    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:

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    That was quite cool.
    Nothing against being small pictures around the world, but seeing our Zendo so crowded was fun!
    Thank you all.

    Hi everyone.

    Back at home after a wonderful couple of weeks in Japan which included - of course! - time with Jundo at Treeleaf, as well as some time with Scott and his teacher, Jinen-san, at Bushi Anon-ji. I can't wait to see you all in your little boxes in the corner of my screen next weekend...!

    That was a lovely! Thank you all for the joy and the dancing. I hope I am not being crass, but how can I get a copy of the music for the Heart Sutra dance? I would like to add it to our practice.

    Hi Ansan,

    Here is our Heart Sutra by Gary Dyson, a Tibetan practitioner who graciously allowed us to make this part of our Ceremony from time to time. It is the "long version" of the Heart Sutra, which the Tibetans tend to chant, with an additional opening and closing section ...
