Happy New Year! Tomorrow during our regularly scheduled Sangha meeting
from 6:30 to 8:30, we will be holding a small New Year's Ceremony as
described in Thay's book "Chanting From The Heart." The ceremony
includes an opportunity for offerings such as fruit, flowers, tea and
incense. If you are so moved, I would invite you to bring some sort
of offering for our shrine, with Thay, the community and your own
family lineage in mind.
Please try to arrive at 6:30 if you can, as we will explain a little
bit about the ceremony at the beginning of Sangha.
The Sangha meeting will include our normal activities of sitting
meditation, walking meditation, tea and cookies and discussion. We're
just gonna mix it up a little bit to start our year on the right foot!
Peace and much love,
