    April 28 -29th Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai - With Sekishi

    Sekishi will be hosting today, with Onkai as Ino, as I must be away ....

    HOWEVER, I hope to see many many people at the Mary Mocine Guest Teaching on Saturday (LINK) !!

    Dear All,

    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:

    Thank you all! I had to step out midway as usual, but it was nice to be with you all as I kept the stream going.

    Thanks everyone for your company and efforts. I appreciate you all!

    Thank you for sitting with me. I would only like to ask you kindly to increase the volume of your speakers/audio because it was a bit low.


    Sat Today

    Wonderful! This one really spoke to me as work and life has been more chaotic than usual and my time here at Treeleaf has been limited, however I am keeping practice alive in my daily life.
