    June 16th, 2012 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenka (partial netcast)

    Hello All,

    NOTE: WE WERE ONLY ABLE TO HAVE KYONIN JOIN US FROM MEXICO TODAY ... AND MY COMPUTER DECIDED TO INSTALL SOME SOFTWARE 20 MINUTES INTO THE SITTING WHICH CUT THE NETCAST OFF ... SO LET US CONSIDER TODAY A 'TRIAL RUN' ... AND WE WILL HAVE OUR 'OFFICIAL' OPENING OF OUR 'SEE EACH OTHER, SEE AS ONE' NOT-TWO WAY ZAZENKAI NEXT WEEK!

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (early Saturday morning)

    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times and any time thereafter ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN




    FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE POSTED FOR FUTURE WEEKS. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG:

    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English ONLY) and Dedication
    00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN
    00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
    00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
    01:25 – 01:30 FOUR VOWS, & VERSE OF ATONEMENT


    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'.

    Please download and print out the words of the Chants we will recite at the following link:


    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2231

    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

                  I'll be there.

                  Just as a note, if anyone is "camera shy" I believe you can attend the live sitting without appearing on the broadcast when we do switch to G+. I would encourage all to do so, but I am quite sure when I first arrived that the idea of appearing on camera would have scared me half to death! Can one of the tech gurus explain how that would work? Thanks!

                  Gassho,

                    If the family non-schedule allows I really hope to sit this one live.

                      Thanks Dosho for the reminder!

                      So, unless you join the Hangout on the Treeleaf Sangha page you will only be watching the YouTube video.

                      The YouTube stream/recorded version will be posted to the Treeleaf Sangha page as well as to this Zazenkai thread.

                      Hope this helps.

                      Gassho,

                      Dokan

                      PS - I will attempt to sit live (on Hangout) however it's sort of dependent on the tolerance of my 3 year old...as I'm on babysitting duty while my wife throws a bunch of guys around at Aikido.

                          I think you can just turn your camera off, just like you would your microphone. (I am very far away from a tech guru so I could very well be wrong FYI)

                            I think the only issue there is that you may take up the space of someone who does want to be on camera because, please correct me techies if I'm wrong, there is a limit of 10 on a Hangout.
