    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'.

    I hope to be there live, but might also still be driving home from the city.

    I'm either case, thank you all for your practice.

    Thankyou guys, what a wonderful way to start the weekend!

    Jundo, it is indeed great to be alive! Spring comes slow in these mountains, but freeze a hotwater bottle for the heat B-)

    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.

    Im new to treeleaf and zazen. This was the first zazenkai that Ive attended,(via recording) and the first time that Ive ever sat for that long. It definitely brought up some feelings I wasnt expecting. Agitation, impatience, restlessness, but all things I was able to recognize as they were happening. Makes me inspired to keep sitting. Thanks Jundo, and thank you sangha.

    Thank you dear Sangha!

    Just catching up on this one. Love the multiverse audio effect, very groovy and transcendent. So was sitting the second half of zazen with this playing in my head (thank you Jundo ):
