    ... 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'.

    Thank you all.

    How did you know I was fidgeting around the first half, trying not to move while breathing into a cramp in my shoulder??
    Have a nice weekend, it's raining cats and dogs here.

    My daughter and I never found enough to make a snow/slushman as it melted in the rain ... but she found enough to make two decent snowballs, one to throw at me and one at her brother.

    それは路面が凍結しているからです。

    Sat with you all this morning. It was kinda funny. I got to thinking it was a very long zazen only to look over and see my iPad say "Storage almost full. See Settings for details" which apparently stops the video too lol.

    10" of snow due here in Denver tomorrow. Woot!

    I very much enjoyed participating as an observer for zazekai last Friday eve. (Central Time USA). I guess one must be quick to actually find a place in front of the webcam. We have a blizzard here in Eastern South Dakota this afternoon, Danny it is snowing cats and dogs, very high winds too.
