    We are still sitting in the mornings during the week.Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 6:45AM Eastern United States Time (GMT -5). Very simple; 30 minutes of zazen and a bow at the end, if anyone would like to join in. Just be on G+ at about that time and the sit should show up a little before 6:45. I (or Daizan) are doing the inviting through the Treeleaf "Community" so you need to be a member for it to show up in your "stream". (If you need instructions on how to join the Treeleaf Community, just let me know.) We've add a Monday and Wednesday "morning service" that begins at 6:15am (still GMT/UTC -5). The "service" consists of 20 minutes of zazen, 10 minutes of kinhin, 20 minutes of zazen, the Heart Sutra, Verse of Atonement and 4 Vows. It takes about an hour. All are welcome!

    Contact Daizan or me if you would like to join but are not getting invites!

    Gassho,

    Shugen

      Hello Talib,

      I sent you a message on Google Plus (I believe it was you anyway). We now sit Monday thru Saturday from 5:40AM EDT (New York city time) until around 6:30AM - 40 minutes of zazen, Heart Sutra, Verse of Atonement and 4 Vows.

      Gassho,

      Shugen

          I sent a join request on the treeleaf sangha community. Is that right?

            Hello rcsheren.

            Did you see this:


            Hi all,

            As is the case every year at jukai and ango time, the list of people requesting to be added to G+ is quite long! To be added to G+, you should contact either Shugen (rculver) or myself (Dosho) as outlined in our FAQ:

            http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/showt...E-for-Zazenkai

            A number of people have already requested to join through Google, which is very helpful, but you must also send a private message here on the forum to be added! This is to make sure only folks who have registered here are able to access the G+ group there. The FAQ linked above should provide you with everything you need, but to be added to G+ there are two things you MUST do. Unfortunately, they also tend to be the most confusing!

            The first is uploading an avatar, which is a picture of your "visible human face" that shows on your forum posts. This is different from a profile picture, which only shows on your profile. This allows us to "see" who is posting, but if this presents a problem please let us know.

            The second is providing us with your "Google name", which in most cases is the username you use to log on to any Google service. If that is not the case, it is usually something you have personally chosen to identify yourself on Google. If you have no idea what that means, chances are good it doesn't apply to you.

            If anything I have posted above does not make sense, contact us and we will personally take you through the entire process, step by step. I am currently working on a new FAQ and could use your help in making it as clear as possible. If you have any comments on making the process easier or less confusing, please let us know. Chances are you are not the only one with that issue.

            Thank you for your patience and practice!

            Gassho,
            Dosho
            This will walk you through joining the G+ Community.

            Gassho,

            Shugen

                        Hi. I will be sitting offline until the end of the month. The current hangout set-up doesn't quite work...(no silent notice, only calls etc) and the result is fussing with the internet and sitting alone anyway, so it is simpler to sit alone until I figure out the notifications etc. in January.

                        Also... working on an art project and won't be around the forum much before the holidays so ...a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a luminous Diwali, and a Joyful Kwanzaa!

                                Reboot......

                                Beginning tomorrow morning, (June 2nd) I will be sitting Monday through Friday from 7am to 7:30am New York City time. The format is: three bells - 30 minutes of zazen - one bell to signal the end of zazen - three bells (the third stopped by the striker) - Heart Sutra in English - two bells to signal the end.

                                If you wish to participate for some or all, be on G+ a little before the start time. I will send an invitation to join.
