    Zazenkai with the "real" recording is exactly as real and live as the "live" version ... especially when we recall that all of life is "empty" and "real."

    So, nothing to force yourself to lose sleep over! Sleep is important.

    Oh yeah, I know and thank you for making it clear for me. Last week I felt it was a nice experience and it’s not much of an effort to do it every now and then since it simply means going to bed a bit earlier and waking up earlier as well - other friends my age are out partying at 3 AM on a Saturday morning. I’ve been pretty set in my practice routine for a few years now so this definitely shakes things up a bit.

    I'd like to add that I was unable to participate in my Jukai ceremony live but participating when I did was as real and live as anything I'd ever experienced. It was a moving ceremony for me and my fellow Jukaiies were absolutely right there with me when I received my Rakusu and Dharma name from Jundo.

    Thank you Rob, Nanrin and Chris for joining me for a yarn. It was terrific to have the US, Thailand, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia represented. I apologise for the terrible internet connection my end. Obvuously this is an experiment like Treeleaf itself so there will be the odd challenge but hey, what a privilege to be able to chat face to face.
    Have a great week folks.

    Thank you Onka for hosting and for a chance to get to know you better. And so good to see Chris and Nanrin for a spell also!

    No worries about the internet issues. Oddly enough, while the video would freeze up from time to time, the audio kept right on going just fine.

    Gassho,
    Rob

    Good morning folks
    Just a friendly reminder that one hour before our weekly and monthly Zazenkai the Sunflower Tea House is open in the spirit of getting to know each other better.
    Have a terrific week. I hope to see as many of you as possible. Check the Treeleaf calendar for the opening time in your area.

    I've just let Jundo know that I am unable to host a tea house anymore.
    Apologies for any inconvenience to the Sangha which I try to serve.

    Sorry to hear that, Onka. I very much enjoyed getting to chat a little bit. I hope it's not because of a bad turn to your health.

    Thank you, Onka. Sometimes life just makes things impossible. We will shutter up the place, assuming nobody wants to take over the time. You are welcome to be back in business whenever you wish.

    So sorry that is the case at the moment, Onka.

    I hope that you may be able to continue in the near future.

    Please take care.

    Fingers crossed I'll only be absent from the tea house for a little while. Life being life, how long is piece of string. I'd suggest that I'm ok with handing over the keys to the tea house back to the Sangha and if the opening times work for someone that they kindly contact Jundo.
    Be kind to yourself and look out for each other.

    Hi Onka,

    If you wish to pick this back up in the future (or if someone else would like to take the helm), I have moved this off the public calendar of meetings, but can easily move it back in if needed.

    May all beings be free of suffering.

    Nine bows,
