Using Google Hangouts (mobile app, or browser plugin for Chrome or Safari) you can join in live-two way sittings with your fellow Sangha members. Please feel free to join a scheduled sitting with a small ceremony in the "Scheduled Sitting Room" (see the calendar for more) or you can drop in and sit any time in the "Free Sitting Room" (sometimes just referred to around here as "the FSR").
Using Google Hangouts (mobile app, or browser plugin for Chrome or Safari) you can join in live-two way meetings with your fellow Sangha members. Currently we have meetings for Tonglen and Fukudenkai (silent sewing).
Each week on Saturday Morning (Tokyo time) we gather together 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.
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.
Dharma talks from giving during the monthly Zazenkai (by Jundo and occationally the Treeleaf priests and Unsui) are posted to the Treeleaf Zendo Podcast. You can either listen to them here, or subscribe to the podcast in the podcasting software of your choice.
The Zen of Everything presents a zen take on life, love, laughter, and everything else. With Jundo Cohen, a real zen master, and Kirk McElhearn, a guy who knows a bit about zen.
