    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:

    ALL OF LIFE IS OUR TEMPLE

    Dear All,

    We are trying a little Treeleaf experiment, to allow some of our priests in Europe, and other distant time zones, to have practice as our Ino-Doan. So, Kotei's fine recital today is recorded.

    (It is also a fine demonstration of graceful Ino form, if anyone wishes to have a look) ...

    Thank you everyone. I sat with you all this morning.

    Lovely chanting Kotei. I’d say the experiment was a success. I also appreciate the reminder about all of our life being our temple. Thank you Jundo and Kotei.

    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.

    Autumn is unfolding in this small branch of Treeleaf. Wonderful to sit together.

    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.
