    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:

    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.

    The one-way youtube video may be unavailable for a little bit. Hopefully not for long.

    Thank you for coming together to manifest Sangha.

    Thanks for your efforts, Sangha. Jundo, thank you for the teaching. News have been really sad, recently and I'm still struggling to cope with them.

    I Loved sitting Zazenkai with all of you.

    Thank you this! I've been on Treeleaf for just a few weeks, i've been a solitary practitioner like forever and its really great being part of a Sangha.
