    Zazen at the Moment by Moment Hangout

    Hello one and all (and none)

    It's a quick post to welcome you all to the Moment by Moment Hangout, every Wednesday at 10.30pm (UK time). https://www.treeleaf.org/now/[/URL], your go-to hangout for relaxed chat and zazen

    Now, maybe it's a strange time to sit or maybe you're always hitting the cushion about now. Either way it is a moment, so it's a zazen moment.

    So, what's the deal?

    It's 25 mins of zazen and then chatting and hanging out for 10 mins.

    Or it's 25 mins zazen and then feel free to take your leave.

    Or it's me, sitting zazen on his own for 25 mins .......and then another 10 mins. Don't worry if it is, I always sit at this time anyway!

    It's unpredictable like life,

    But it is zazen and chat......at the Moment by Moment Hangout!

    Timings

    Hellos at 30 mins past the hour.
    Start bell, 35 mins past the hour
    End bell on the hour, followed by the hangout

    I'll see you there, maybe!

    Gassho,

    Ryokudo

            Thank you for the invitation, Ryokudo. Unfortunately I'm working at this time of the day or I would make you company.

                        Check your Zoom settings. Ask Bion, and he can explain the issue. At least, strike those bells firmly!

                            Thank you Ryokudo for organizing this Zazen and hangout, it was my first time sitting with other members of the Sangha in the SSR!
                            I'll be coming back to sit at this time week after week.

                              Hey Alina,

                              Brilliant that's great to hear, it was an auspicious start to the hangout, only due to everyone's approach to the session.

                              I can't wait to see you next week.
