    May 12 -13th Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai - For Those In Hiding, Those Who Are Lost ...

    This is my late brother Fred.
    Gay and Jewish in the 1950s, he had to hide both.
    He felt need to change his last name, struggled with who he was, lost touch with my father, wandered.
    Today is dedicated to all who must hide, and to our friends and family who are sometimes lost.

    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) ...

    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 sat with you all today. Thank you for the talk, it hit close to home for me personally, and with some family members I know.

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.
