    Anyone up for Zazenkai??

    I plan to sit-a-long, with the first portion of the Treeleaf Zazenkai, this weekend.

    Anybody interested in joining me? I'll wait a little bit and see if anyone expresses an interest perhaps we could corridnate it so that we begin at the same time.

    leave a message at this thread.

    here is the schedule and link

    00:00 – 00:50 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA/SANDOKAI) & ZAZEN
    00:50 – 01:00 KINHIN
    01:00 – 01:35 ZAZEN
    01:35 – 01:45 KINHIN
    01:45 – 02:15 ZAZEN

    (approx. 2 hours 15 minutes)

    JOIN ABOVE CEREMONY, ZAZEN & KINHIN

      Actually. yeah, Gregor, not a bad idea. Saturday's shot, but I can do Sunday. A particular time you had in mind?

        Kvon,

        How about tomorrow morning like 8:30am? If your up for earlier that would work too.



        let me know.

          Hi Guys,

          That's great. Let me mention that, now that I am back in Tsukuba, I hope to start a regular series of monthly or bi-monthly retreats and such.

          More news on that soon. We will surely do something for "Buddha's Birthday", which is April 8th in Japan (he was born other days in other places).

          And, of course, our long delayed "Jukai" preparations will commence shortly.

          Gassho, Jundo

            Hi, Greg, Kvon, and Jundo.

            I would love to join in the Zazenkai, but my wife has the stomach flu, so I'm the only grownup (and that's debatable) on duty with the munchkins this weekend.

            My best,
            Bill

              Jundo,

              Your upcoming plans sound great. I'll definitely be involved with the activities.


              Bill,

              No problems, I understand your commitments. Sounds like a noble charge you have there!


              Kvon,

              I'm going to go ahead and plan on 8:30 am, hope you can join me.


              Gassho,

                  Kvon,

                  Great! It's 8am right now, so i'm going to jump in the shower, grab a cup of tea. Then . . . get on the Zafu.

                  Gassho,

                    It was good, Gregor. I wasn't able to log in to let you know I was here... aftermath of the storms we had all night. But I was, and we sat.
                    SO, after two and a quarter hours of Zazenkai with you, I'm off to sit with the little group I've been leading. In the words of Sasaki Roshi, "MORE ZAZEN!"
                    Thanks Gregor. this was great!

                          I didn't know Jundo did a short, 2 hour Zazenkai. This is great. I'll do this later today. I know about the longer one and I still haven't done it yet. ops:

                          I also must have missed the Jukai ceremony.

                          Will this be considered a bona-fide Jukai ceremony? Are new folks like me allowed to participate and take precepts (should people like me do that)? Will we be doing a certain amount of study? :shock:

                            Kvon,

                            Nice sitting with you. I might try it again next week.



                            Tracy,

                            This was just part one from the day long retreat from november, but it works nicely for a Sunday morning.

                            good Jukai questions, btw.

                              I love the idea, I'll try and join the group next time. I'm not much of a morning person and working on servers until 7am the other night kind of messed up my schedule.

                              Jundo, looking forward to the special events!
