Nick's Winter Photo-2

Greetings friends,

This coming Sunday­­­­­­ December 8, the Shumei International Institute will hold its monthly sampai.  Most months we now show a short ‘Shumei News’ video that is also shown at the monthly Sampai at our headquarters Misono in Japan each month.  We will begin this video (typically about 10 minutes long) each month starting at 10:30 AM.  For people who would like to see this video news, you will want to be seated in the sanctuary by this time.

We begin the sampai introduction at 10:40 with the formal sampai ceremony beginning at precisely 11:00 AM.  Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for the sampai.  At that time Sensei Alan Imai will lead us in chanting the Amatsunorito and Zengensanji after which he will share the healing light of Jyorei with all those present.  Following Jyorei Sensei Alan Imai will share a presentation about Shumei’s activities and the teachings of our founder Meishusama.  After the sampai a healthy buffet luncheon with Natural Agriculture, local and organic ingredients will be served. The luncheon is by donation.  We hope many of you can join us this Sunday.

Brilliant Wintery Crestone blessings,

Matthew
