    Zazen Google+

    Anyone else using Google+ from Treeleaf other than:

    ** Edit ** - Removed the names to protect the innocent. Was going to make a list, but then realized that everyone has at least two, sometimes three names! Was too much of a headache so just used the pictures instead.




    It has been great for our daily zazen meetups via the Hangout feature

    If anyone hasn't signed up and wants to check it out...here is an open invite:

    Gassho!

    PS - The first one is my wife...while not on the Treeleaf forum, you are welcome to add her of course.

    As you know, I use Hangouts everyday at the break of dawn for my zazen... but I don't think I am on the calendar. How does it work?

      Just FYI, that link there shows our real names and this isn't the locked forum. In case anybody's touchy about that.

      Gassho,

          BTW I feel pretty stupid but how do you get a hangout going? I tried doing "Start a Hangout" yesterday, sat for 20 minutes (with the sad robot :cry: ) but when I was done it didn't show up in my stream that I hung out.

            That's actually correct...just nobody joined you. The typical method that I use is to:

            - Start the Hangout
            - Set the people I want to hang out with to "Treeleaf" circle (yours of course may be different)
            - Then start the hangout
            - Go back to the Plus.google.com page (on the other screen) and add a comment of "Zazen"
            - In this way, not only are you telling others why you are hanging out, but also it'll keep it on your thread.
            - I also have used Suizen (for when I play shakuhachi) and Sewing.

            Gassho,

            Shawn

            PS - May be quite early, but Choco, Roky & I have been sitting together almost every morning at 5:30 or 6am CDT.

              Hi.

              I usually keep track of google+ and sit there from time to time, as many others from treeleaf do, in my experience.
              And don't worry about noone joining you, remember, when we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

                Hey Choco,

                Just send me in PM or in G+ your email address and I can add you to the list. After that you can edit the calendar

                Treeleaf Sitting Schedule

                and then enter in when you will sit.

                Gassho,

                      Sorry about that...I added you last night but then forgot to click "Save".

                      However, you should have been able to view it regardless, thought it was public.

                      ...

                      Just checked it and it's been made non-public. Maybe Shohei changed it.

                      Anywho, you should have now access.

                      Gassho,

                      Shawn
