    Dec 30-31st Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai - TIMELESS-ALL-TIME-JUST-THIS-TIME-EVER-NEW YEAR

    Today's Zazenkai will take some moments on this little screed:

    a TIMELESS-ALL-TIME-JUST-THIS-TIME-EVER-NEW-YEAR ... (LINK)


    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) ...

    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 came here to confirm this zazenkai because it did not appear on my calendar.

    Odd 5th Friday, so Google loses its magic. These need to be added manually, but we’ll be there!

    Please consider whatever I might say as my own ideas, experiences and understanding, and not zen doctrine.

    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.

    Thak you, Jundo, Onkai and everyone.
    Sat this beautiful Zazenkai with my two youngest daughters (though they pretty much just played around me).
