    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:

    Hi everyone,

    Just a note - I will be taking screenshots tonight for some training materials. So if you see me all up in the camera not chanting, thats why. Please ignore my uncouth rudeness.

    Thank you everyone.

    Here is a little poem that came in today's sitting.

    The inner part of the tree
    was nurtured by the spring
    by the summer, by the autumn
    and the winter.

    And the inner part of the tree
    knows what to do in the winter,
    knows what to do in the spring,
    knows what to do in the summer,
    knows what to do in the autumn.

    All the roots, branches,
    fruits and flowers
    are contained
    in the inner part of the tree.

    Nurtured by mentors
    like seasons,
    in the inner part of the tree
    mentors and ancestors are sitting
    with us.

    Thank you everyone. I sat with you this morning.

    I appreciated the story about Doshin Cantor and his impact on Treeleaf. I had assumed that most of the ceremony came from Nishijima Roshi.

    Gassho,
    Kotei sat/lah today.

    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.

    What a beautiful talk. Thank you.

    Metta to Tai Shi and Doshin.
