    Zazen Sitting with Meian, Onki, Shosai, & Tai Shi (Mo, Tu, We, Th, Fr)

    UPDATED SITTING SCHEDULE:

    In order of days:

    Tai Shi -- hosts Mondays and Fridays

    Onki -- hosts Tuesdays and Thursdays

    Wednesdays: Shosai (MichaelW)

    (No Saturdays for now)

    All days are hosted in the Treeleaf Scheduled Sitting Room (SSR), which can be found here: https://www.treeleaf.org/now/go.php?l=ssr

    We meet at 9am EST, and please check the Treeleaf Calendar for your local time: https://www.treeleaf.org/now/#calendar

    ALL are welcome to join us -- no previous experience is required.

    We begin with the Verse of the Robe, but it's okay if you do not have a Rakusu. Just place hands in gassho ([emoji120]) and follow along. [emoji851]

    Note: If anyone has any questions about this sit, or scheduling issues -- please do contact me via Treeleaf messaging.

    Thank you all for your practice.

    Deep Bows, meian stlh

      Hello all,

      This is just an announcement that this M-F sit group will be on hiatus until late January or early February of 2024.

      Two of our hosts are stepping back for now, and it seems best to pause things while most of us are focused on the Ango and Jukai season beginning.

      The M-F group will finish next Friday, September 1st -- in time for Ango to begin.

      If anyone would like information on hosting in January or February, please feel free to message Meian directly, and they will explain how it works.

      Our deep gratitude for the dedication and service of Onki, Shosai, and Tai Shi (who plans to return in time).

      Deep Bows to all.

        Thank you, Meian. [emoji1431]

        Gasshō,

        “Let me respectfully remind you
        Life and death are of supreme importance.
        Time swiftly passes by
        And opportunity ist lost.
        Each of us should strive to awaken.
        Awaken, take heed,
        Do not squander your life.​“ - Life and Death and The Great Matter

          I can take the 9am slot. Only time this will be a problem is on Fridays in November when I start teaching an MBSR class at that time. It lasts 9 weeks. Other than that I can do this.
          I am in a training in September which will take away a Monday and Tuesday but maybe I find coverage.

            Hi Daiman,

            We are deeply grateful for your offer. [emoji120]

            I may be able to pick up the Fridays that you will not be available, and I'll loop Shosai in as he has faithfully led Wednesdays for months as well.

            We will message you both, and explore this option. [emoji846]

              Dear all,

              It looks as though the M-F sit will continue without interruption, with Shosai, Daiman, and myself coordinating days.

              Thank you both for stepping up.

                  Hello All,

                  The M-F sit is continuing with some personnel changes. The sit will be hosted by Shosai, Daiman, Rowan, Onki, and Tai Shi. I will be coordinating days. Onki also hosts this group on a Saturday and has his own schedule on the calendar.

                  This Friday there will be no scheduled sit due to the Shukke Tokudo "Home-leaving Ordination" for Doshin Randy Gray at that time. Also, Saturday with Onki will also be cancelled due to Rohatsu. We will resume on Monday December 4.

                  Gassho,

                  Daiman,
                  St/LAH
