    OUR NEW 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

    As you can see, our Zazenkai consists of chanting the 'Heart Sutra' in English (the words are at the link below), some full floor prostrations in sets of three (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), followed by our Dedication, Zazen twice for 30 minutes each, with 10 minutes of Kinhin in between, and we end the sitting with 'The Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'.

    So, please join us as soon as you can, and we will keep a Zafu open for you.

    Remember, when we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!


    Gassho, Jundo

    WOnderful sitting! Gassho. Today was the first time I really "understood" the zazen posture. By that I mean how solid, stable, and peaceful it is. The less trying there is, the more peace seems to emanate.

    Gassho

      Deep Gassho to my Dharma Brothers and Sisters that I sat with this morning, and for Jundo thinking of my brother in law's gf that passed this weekend due to cancer.

      Gassho,
