    JUNDO - Please join me from (our budget apartment in) BEAUTIFUL LAS VEGAS, NEVADA ... SIN CITY!
    The internet connection is a little unstable, so if you loose me, THE INO IS IN CHARGE!

    Dear All,

    10am Japan Saturday morning, NY 9pm, LA 6pm Friday night, London 2am and Paris 3am Saturday morning, or any time thereafter here:


    However, "one way" live sitters are encouraged to come into the Zoom sitting, and just leave the camera and microphone turned off: Join live (with or without a camera & microphone) on Zoom at: TREELEAF Now OR at DIRECT ZOOM LINK, password (if needed): dogen

    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication
    00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN

    PS - There is no "wrong" or "right" in Zazen ... yet here is a little explanation of the "right" times to Bow (A Koan) ...

    The other video I mention on Zendo decorum is this one, from our "Always Beginners" video Series:

    I also recommend a little Talk on why small rituals and procedures are so cherished in the Zendo:

    He/him. As a novice priest-in-training, this is simply an expression of my opinion. Please take it with a grain of salt.

    Thank you, Sekishi, Jakuden, Jundo, and everyone. It was a lovely zazenkai and talk, although I was pulled away to let a cat out of the rain and to give him food. Have a great weekend!

    I have a lot to learn; take anything I say that sounds like teaching with a grain of salt.

    Thank you everyone!! So good to sit with my Sangha. Apologies for the last minute scramble to set up, when Jundo showed up I figured I was off the hook

    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).

    Thanks…like you Jundo I work to be home/centered where I am but the rocks and lizards feel more like home. Can’t shake it.

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

    Feel free to message me if you wish to talk about issues around practicing with physical limitations. This is something I have been sitting with for a fair while and am happy to help with suggestions or just offer a listening ear.

    Finished this a few days ago but forgot to thank every one. Jundo's location made me think of Guns n Roses but I'll leave it there !

    Guess I'll have to view the recording. I was able to sit 2 hours with Retreat, I'll go a bit longer with the recording. Sitting becoming somewhat easier with consistent mornings at 8:30 to 9:00 Central Daylight. Perhaps we could involve a few more people at that time. We are 2 to 5 people willing to get up in the USA, and for me just preparation is what it takes. I'm up at 5 or 5:30 a.m. and ready by 8:30. Besides now I'm able to sit once in a while quit a bit longer for Zazenkai. This was me goal when I began almost 7 years ago: as a new person I worked very hard. Then I found out it's not in the hard work.
