    Nov 19-20th Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai- Old Dog New Trick Zazenkai (DAYLIGHT SAVINGS!)

    ATTENTION: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS has changed, please confirm new start times!

    Dear All,

    Please sit our Treeleaf Zazenkai for 90 minutes with Zazen, Heart Sutra and more:

    10am Japan Saturday morning, NY 8pm, LA 5pm Friday night, London 1am and Paris 2am 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
    00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
    00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
    01:25 – 01:30 VERSE OF ATONEMENT & FOUR VOWS
    01:30 - 01:45(?) Informal Tea Time (All Welcome)

    ATTENTION: Everyone, when rising for Kinhin or Ceremonies after Zazen, get up slowly, don't rush, hold something stable, you won't be "late," so TAKE YOUR TIME! Make sure you are careful getting up!

    Gassho, Jundo

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


    Chant Book is here for those who wish to join in: CHANT BOOK LINK

    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:

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

    Despite the warnings about daylight savings, I came in an hour late! Just sat the remaining hour... which means I sat with my past self as well for a few minutes.

    Bion: Thanks for the reminder that even just living through a week is an accomplishment.

    Thanks for sitting, everyone!

    Thank you everyone, lovely to join you all!

    New tricks are important, research suggests that our perception of time can be slowed down through new experiences: https://medium.com/@Jude.M/the-magic...s-83d621c73b9b (tons of stuff about this out there, but this is a nice easy read about why)

    I like to alter my appearance, take new routes to work, and all sorts of other simple change ups for this reason.

    Gassho,

    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.

    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.
