    Special Farewell Zazenkai for Kyonin

    Dear All,

    If you have time, we will have a special farewell and good travels Zazenkai tonight for Kyonin, as he boards his plane back to Mexico. The length will be no more than 45 minutes or an hour, and it will be joinable as follows:

    The Zazenkai will be netcast from 8:30am Japan time (that is New York 7:30pm, Los Angeles 4:30pm (Monday night), London 12:30am and Paris 1:30am (early Tuesday morning). We are sorry that the time is a little inconvenient in some places, but Kyonin must catch his flight.

    The one way screen will be visible here, and a link will be posted below for joining "two way."

    ZAZENKAI BEGINS 9 MINUTES FROM START OF THE VIDEO


    Thank you, and I hope to see a few folks here. Here is Kyonin today, as we sat with the Great Buddha of Kamakura ...


    HASTA PRONTO, KYONIN!


    Gassho, J

    Hi all,

    To join the Zazenkai two way, here is the Zoom meeting link:
    https://zoom.us/j/4834831244

    If you have not installed Zoom, following the above link should walk you through installing Zoom as an app on your mobile device or as a desktop client under Windows, Mac, or Linux. If you have already installed the Zoom desktop client or mobile app, you can use the link above, or simply open Zoom and join with the following meeting id: 483 483 1244

    Here are a few other notes and tips for using Zoom:

    - When you first join, you'll need to choose an audio source (usually you can simply select "Join with Computer Audio" on desktop or "Call using Internet Audio" on mobile).
    - When you first join, you should be automatically muted.

    - Each participant can switch between the "speaker view" (the default view) and "gallery view" (a grid / Hollywood Squares / Brady Bunch style view) whenever they would like
    -- On desktop, click the "gallery view" / "speaker view" toggle button on the top right
    -- On mobile, swipe right for "gallery views" -- only 4 participants are shown at a time on mobile, so keep swiping right to go through different groups, swipe left to go back to the "gallery view"

    - You can mute, unmute, etc. with the control bar on the bottom of the screen
    -- On desktop, hover the mouse over the window and the control bar should pop up
    -- On mobile, tap the screen and the control bar should pop up
    -- On mobile, so that your own picture does not take up one of the four slots you see, you can tap for the control bar, then tap "... menu" and select "Remove myself from gallery view"

    - The free version of Zoom will only allow you to HOST meetings up to 40 minutes long, but you can JOIN meetings of any length (the Zazenkai, etc.) with it.

    - If you are on a slow Internet connection and are experiencing drop-outs, try turning off video (you can always turn it on for a bit at the beginning and end to save and bow to everyone)

    Gassho,

    Thankyou Jundo, Kyonin, Sekishi and everyone else that could make it.
    I feel genuinely warm and fuzzy after this last sitting with Kyonin in Japan and have many questions for him once he's home and rested.

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    I couldn't attend this live and have just sat with recording. Thank you all.

    Thank you, Kyonin, for taking us along the adventure and I wish you have
    a safe flying home!
