    Sept. 23-24th Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai - Is the Universe Magic and a Miracle?


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

    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
    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:

    Going to try sitting with you via Zoom on 5G in the forest. No idea if the tech will work but I’ll be with you regardless.

    Deep bows,

    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!

    And Jundo, if we outnumber the American members, maybe we can have enough influence over the weekly Zazenkai schedule What do you think? The first census of Treeleaf?

    Thank you everyone!

    Gassho,

    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.

    Thanks for the small "assignments" Jundo.
    I will remember to stop and be (in) the miracle.

    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.

    Sat with the recording and also listened to “My thymus, myself.” Remembering to recognize the miracles.
