Using the (free) Zoom video conferencing platform, we gather together each week on Saturday Morning (Tokyo time) for a live video netcast Zazenkai. The first Zazenkai of the month is 4 hours long, while the others are 90 minutes. Zazenkais are recorded to Youtube and remain available in their respective forum threads for discussion or later viewing and sitting.
Join the Zazenkai in the Scheduled Sitting Room (approximately 10 minutes prior to the official start): treeleaf.org/ssr
Please note: On Thursday or Friday this video will typically change to a placeholder in anticipation of the upcoming Zazenkai.
Currently the recorded Zazenkai are no longer appearing on the Treeleaf Youtube page, but they can always be viewed either here or via the forum threads.
