    I have a working microphone now. Sat today in the Hangouts SSR. Tomorrow I'm going to start using the Zoom SSR. I hope this won't be a problem for anyone.

    Awesome! Let us know how it goes!

    I think the feedback so far has been pretty positive. It will be time to make the switch to Zoom for all sittings soon I think.

    Deep bows,

    My Zoom Join box is confused:
    483 483 1244 scheduled sitting room
    816 667 1365 is labeled Treeleaf Personal Sitting room as is the scheduled sitting room.
    How about some name changes?

    I also had trouble with getting into Zoom Scheduled Sitting Room. I get a message that it is a recurring meeting. "Please wait for your host" I just checked it, and it is working now. I led the Sunday Zazenkai in Hangouts, but nobody else was there. Was it supposed to be in Zoom? Thank you.

    Hi Onkai,

    Thank you for hosting the Sunday Sit. It's still supposed to be in Hangouts until further notice I think.
    Perhaps it was just 'nobody elese was there'

    Kyousui,

    I just wanted to let you know that the names should all be updated now so they are standardized. If you still see one that says "Treeleaf Personal Sitting" you can remove it.

    Please don't take anything I say as anything more than just a normal person's thoughts on the topic. I'm just stumbling through life trying to be helpful, but really don't know much.

    Is this the place to look into hosting sits? I'm looking at Tues. and Wed. 630 p (PST) which would give us some continuity at that time through the week. _()_

    That would be great! I don't have a Tuesday sitting because I'm sometimes away that day. But I'll probably be able to join in fairly regularly. ^_^

    Shall I put it on the calendar starting next week?

    Let's do. I have begun extra sits (and tea) (and readings) between the 6:30 and 8:30 (PST) opportunities anyway, so that it's becoming a kind of loosely structured daily zazenkai (bookended by really good sits) and I'd love to see those slots open up to be part of that. Up until now I've been doing those things at 10 am and I'm needing longer blocks of time for samu

    I'd like to do this the way Washin does, so I don't get confused by the different translations of the robe verse (or, if people would rather, could just do the Japanese [or is that Japanese Chinese] three times).

    This sounds great! I've added the Tuesday and Wednesday sits to the calendar as a half-hour. Let me know if you want me to add any special instructions to them.

    So what way does Washin do it? I'm happy to adapt the Su/Mo/Th to be the same so we are consistent.

    Washin has us arrive at the set time with robe verse already said; three bells as soon as everyone is settled. But I think I should conform more to your style for best results. _()_
