    ... 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'.

    Hi Shingen,

    We are not going to be using the "standby" system now.

    If very many people indicate beforehand that they wish to sit "two-way", I will try to arrange a second live hangout instead.

    So, come on in!

    Gassho, Jundo

    I will see how I am feeling by tonight. I may be able to participate for 1/2 of it, so I think I will just sit one-way.

    Thank you all for sitting together.

    Today's sitting is dedicated to all the folks encountering the unexpected: death, alarming diagnoses, illness, loss of beloved possessions, plans interrupted, unexpected challenges of all kinds. May all know equanimity and peace.

    I'm a new member, and I sat with you today. Even though it was across time and space, I deeply appreciated the chance to join others for zazen. I look forward to sitting with you again.
